EbolaAlert is Nigeria’s official Alert platform for Ebola in Nigeria.
“We found a fast spreading false rumor of Ebola cases in Nigeria. The rumor was initiated by an irresponsible blogger who lied that there are cases of Ebola in Nigeria just to generate traffic to her website.
In order to prevent what happened during the Ebola outbreak where people were told to drink salt water and some ended up losing their lives, we are doing this to let you know ahead of this rumor and to also tell your friends and neighbors. The rumor is false, there is no known case of Ebola in Nigeria.
WHO in partnership with the Nigerian Center for Disease Control and the Lagos State Ministry of Health have trained hospitals across Lagos and other parts of the country on how to report any suspect case of Ebola. We will be one of the first to know if there is Ebola in Nigeria and be sure we will notify Nigerians through official and appropriate channels.
Kindly follow @EbolaAlert on Twitter and like EbolaAlert on Facebook for regular updates and inquiry on Ebola around the world. You can visit also www.ebolaalert.org for daily updates.
Kindly help broadcast this as far as possible. Thank you.”
