He explained that the sensitisation was on the importance of imbibing the act of hand washing and maintaining good hygiene as measures of containing the disease.

He also cautioned health workers to ensure they used personal protective equipment (PPE) while treating infected persons to avoid the spread of the disease.

The disease is primarily transmitted from animal to man, while the secondary source of transmission is through human to human contact.
