No Ebola or other viruses identified in samples. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-32365830 Whatever it is appears to attack the central nervous system. WHO officials are in the area to investigate. The Ondo State Commissioner for Health has released a statement outlining what looks like a very impressive management plan for the outbreak organised around five different 'task teams'. http://outbreaknewstoday.com/nigeria-ondo-state-mystery-illness-statement-released-59550/ So the work will revolve around: Contact tracing - to try and find anyone who might have been exposed Case management - trying to find the best way to treat victims forensic and lab work to identify the causative agent Public education - to get messages out to communities and minimise ongoing risk Electronic and social media management - to get updates and information out in a timely fashion and ensure the population are not subject to rumours and inaccuracies resulting in panic. I wonder if this is why Nigeria managed to nip their Ebola outbreak in the bud so effectively. I really hope they manage to identify the cause swiftly.
