Nigeria: Emerging and Re-Emerging Diseases - Call for Timely Public Health Response in Nigeria

[Guardian] At present, the World Health Organisation (WHO) is monitoring a couple of infectious diseases, including: Ebola, Lassa fever, Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), Haemorrhagic fever, West Nile Virus, and Lyme disease. The rate of re-emergence of infectious disease has been on the increase. Diseases such as cholera, tuberculosis, Influenza (flu), hepatitis and staphylococcus infections thought to have been controlled are re-emerging. A majority of the agents

ConclusionA growing body of literature has shown an association between SARS ‐CoV‐2 infection and the development of different types of CNS demyelination. Although causality cannot readily be inferred, this review may suggest a probable causal relationship, through a para-infectious or post-infectious immune-mediated etiology in COVID-19 patients. This relationship needs to be clarified in future research.

ConclusionOur data emphasize that metabolic dysfunction has a significant impact on hepatocarcinogenesis in patients with NAFLD. Moreover, coexisting multiple metabolic risk factors would dampen the risk of developing HCC in patients with NAFLD. Closely tracing HCC formation through laboratory examination or imaging is crucial in these patients.
