The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as announced that Nigeria is at a “moderate risk” of fresh outbreak of the Ebola Virus Disease. This was announced in a statement on the agency’s website. According to NCDC, the fresh outbreak is ushered by Nigeria’s proximity to Guinea, where there are currently Ebola cases. The statement reads in part: “The EVHDWG has carried out a risk assessment on the possibility of transmission of the virus to Nigeria. “Given the proximity of Guinea to Nigeria and other West African countries as well as other indicators, Nigeria has been placed at moderate risk of an EVD outbreak. “The outputs from this risk assessment are being used to initiate preparedness activities in-country.
