A corps member (names withheld) has been quarantined after showing symptoms of monkey pox.
Benue State Commissioner for Health and Human Services, Cecilia Ojabo, who gave an updated information of the suspected victim of monkey pox discovered in Gboko early November said a corp member who was the victim’s lover also showed similar symptoms that led to his being quarantined.
She explained further that the result of the blood samples of the Gboko victim of monkey pox was received a few days ago and tested positive to other viral infections.
According to the commissioner, the victim’s lover, who was a driver from Lagos, had visited and slept with the lady before she showed the symptoms.
“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.”
