I paid a visit to Imo state state medical centre yesterday and a particular banner got my attention. The information reads :
“If you see any child or patient with weakness or floppiness of limbs regardless of the limbs call the following Number 08038231944 or contact and local government Health centre”
Flaccid paralysis is an illness characterized by weakness or paralysis and reduced muscle tone without other obvious cause (e.g., trauma). This abnormal condition may be caused by disease or by trauma affecting the nerves associated with the involved muscles. When muscles enter this state, they become limp and cannot contract. This condition can become fatal if it affects the respiratory muscles, posing the threat of suffocation.
The term Acute flaccid paralysis is used to refer to sudden onset just as it is seen in polio.
Please once you notice any sign of uncoordinated movement or stiffness of either the legs or hands of a child between the age of 0-15 years kindly call this number:08038231944.
Help save our future leaders please by sharing this message.
