An outbreak of an unidentified disease has claimed the lives of at least 57 people in the southeastern Nigerian state of Enugu, according to local media.
The communities of Ette and Umuopu have been affected since September.
Vincent Oshomi, a Disease Surveillance and Notification officer in the region, said before vomiting blood, the victims showed symptoms of diarrhea and convulsion.
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says epidemiologists have been deployed. Initial samples from sick people returned negative for COVID-19, Lassa and yellow fever.
