Speaking while educating residents of Anambra state on measures to prevent the Lassa Fever disease, which is spreading in parts of the country, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Joe Akabuike, announced that the State Government has prohibited the drinking of garri in the state as a measure to prevent the contraction of Lassa fever.

According to PUNCH, he said, “The garri you see spread along the highway while you’re travelling is very risky to consume, especially when you drink it. It is better and surer consuming the ones you prepared yourself. We are by this enlightenment prohibiting the drinking of garri in the state.

“Like any other form of disease, good hygiene practices and taking precautions over all forms of symptoms among family members and friends will go a long way to curb the spread of diseases.

“Hand washing remains an effective way of preventing diseases. Families as well as corporate organisations should re-adopt the use of tip taps and hand sanitisers placed in public places.”
