Ondo State government has taken delivery of three new ambulances and other medical consumables to intensify the fight against Lassa fever in the state. Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC) donated the item to the state government under the Healthier Niger Delta initiative of the commission.
The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro, received the items on behalf of the state government at the weekend. Dr. Adegbenro, who described the donation as a welcome development, said it would assist the government to fight Lassa fever in the state.
While appreciating the NDDC for the kind gesture, the commissioner said the cost of treating a patient, which is as high as N1.6 million, necessitated the state seeking help from agencies.
