OUTBREAK INVESTIGATIONS
Investigation of Dengue fever outbreak in Rivers State
In May 2016, the military hospital in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, reported an outbreak of Dengue fever. A PCR test done by the Lagos University Teaching Hospital confirmed the index case, a 29-year-old woman to have dengue fever. Residents and graduates took part in the outbreak investigation from 1 -8 May 2016, which involved a case study conducted in the victims’ community and the hospital where she was previously treated. The residents and graduates also conducted sensitization of health workers and local community and eventually no evidence of further transmission of the diseas was recorded hence declaring the outbreak subsequently over.

Early detection of the outbreak is attributed to the recently conducted Frontline FETP training in Rivers State where personnel of the military hospital participated. The residents and graduates who participated in the outbreak include Dr Ndubuisi Akpuh, (Cohort VI) Ibitein Okafor (Cohort VI) and Dr. Urang Joseph (Graduate)
