A 20-year-old corp member (name withheld) serving in Gboko, Benue State has been quarantined for exhibiting symptoms of monkey pox.
The State Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Dr. Cecilia Ojabo, confirmed to Punch that the victim’s lover, also showed similar symptoms which resulted in his being quarantined.
“We have received the report of the blood samples of the suspected victim of monkey pox reported few weeks ago and it is positive with other viral infections.
“The lady has since been quarantined. We also later discovered that a young man who is a lover of the 20-year-old corp member also had rashes on his body and two of them have been quarantined,” she said.
Ojabo explained that the corps member had slept with another lover who is a driver from Lagos.
While we were doing contact tracing, we discovered that the victim had earlier slept with another lover who is a driver and who came from Lagos.
