Yellow fever outbreak in South Eastern State of Nigeria--virological and serological studies



Yellow fever outbreak in South Eastern State of Nigeria--virological and serological studies



Nigerian Medical Journal 6(1): 38-41



An outbreak of Yellow Fever in South Eastern State involving Uyo, Itu and Abak divisions is presented. The occurrence of few jaundiced cases with fever in places 29-35 km outside Uyo indicated that the epidemic was more widely spread than it was thought. The rural communities appeared to be more severely affected where a considerably large number of unrecorded deaths were reported. Mortality rate was about 56% among hospitalised patients. The diagnosis of Yellow Fever was confirmed by virus isolation and serology This was the first recorded outbreak in this area.
