“Lassa fever presents like any other fever, with symptoms such as headache, body pain and general feeling of being unwell.

“”Therefore, anyone who is felling feverish should visit the hospital immediately.

“Prompt presentation is the key to reducing the mortality rate associated with the disease, but most times, patients do come to the hospitals late.
