In this video, I look at some of the important infectious disease outbreaks in the most populous country in Africa, Nigeria.

The recent yellow fever outbreak in Bauchi State, with the epicenter being the Yankari game reserve of Alkaleri LGA.

In addition, I examine the outbreak in the country outside of Bauchi.

A monkeypox outbreak has been occurring for the past 2-plus years and I give an update on the situation through Sept. 2019.

Nigeria has also been battling a large Lassa fever outbreak and I take a look at that.

Lastly, Nigeria appears on the verge of being officially declared free of wild poliovirus type-1 (its been over three years since the last case) and I talk about the latest on polio there.
