The Nigeria Centre for Diseases Control, NCDC has said that there are currently 10 suspected cases of Cerebrospinal Meningitis (CSM) reported in the country.
In a tweet the NCDC said the cases come from five LGAs in four States (Adamawa – 2, Borno – 1, Ebonyi – 1 & Katsina – 6).
It also said that none of the cases was laboratory confirmed and no death has so far been recorded.
To prevent further spread off the disease the agency says it plans to sustain the following actions:
• National CSM TWG meets weekly to review reports from States and plan appropriately
• Enhanced surveillance in all states
• Continue harmonisation of the national line list and SORMAS data
• Continue to ensure that States reporting cases send their line lists and collect CSM samples
