‘The problem is that most of our garri sellers in the market buy their garri from bush markets…subsequently dried on polythene sheets on the tarred roads or compounds in the villages. These rat dive in at will’.
I found this short piece on one of my social network. I thought is worth sharing.
‘The name of the rat that harbours the virus that causes lassa fever is called multimammate rat (because it has many nipples like all these local street dogs after delivery). While the botanical name is mastomys natalensis.
There is also an upsurge of the disease everywhere. So we should all practice hand washing hygiene. Also all apple lovers should wash them with salt and warm water before refrigerating them to eat. Our wives should avoid testing of dry garri by chewing them for starch in the market. All garri soakers should let go for now.
