Fear gripped students and staffs of Obafemi Awolowo University today as the news of a yet-to-be confirmed case of Ebola infection filtered through the University community. An Undergraduate female student was ushered to the University Health Centre by her room mates yesterday as she was said to be manifesting some peculiar symptoms of the deadly disease.
The rumour got intensified today as health workers of the World Health Organization(WHO) and other Bodies were sighted in the Health Centre dressed in the Ebola protective way 'fumigating' the environments. That would be the second time it will be fumigated today.
As at the time of filing this report, it is not yet clear if the suspected Ebola victim was still in the University Health Centre because another report has it that she has been moved to the Obafemi Awolowo University Teaching Hospital, some minutes drive away from the University campus.
The University Management is yet to make any official declaration on the case. If the report is true, this will be the first Ebola case reported in The State of Osun.
