illness has struck residents of the state leaving at least 62 people

many people because it has some symptoms that are similar to Lassa fever
such as diarrhea, abdominal pain, and vomiting but apparently its
something different.

West Local Government Area of the state. Other areas are Okunran and
Isanlu-Esa – both villages in Yagba West LGA.  With over 60 people dead
