Confirming her reports, other users wrote on how they experienced same with almost same symptoms.
Not only in Onitsha, in Lagos state, some many people are treating either malaria or typhoid and this baffles me because they are too much of them now than before.
no big deal, seen a lot of people in Aba with the same symptoms, treatment is basic malaria drugs and vitamin C supplements, or if you are traditional, boil a mixture of neem, lime, grape in water and drink 2 cups everyday( 1morning and 1night) for 3 days. Not a medical advice.
Everybody is onitsha is sick, malaria drugs has increased in the local market . We are all taking injections
I live and work in Fegge. I can confirm that this is true but more true is that they’re recovering. Speculations say it is a result of the fumigation that was carried out in the markets.
