Comments: On 15 September 2017, the Nigeria Federal Ministry of Health notified WHO of a confirmed yellow fever case in Ifelodun Local Government Area (LGA), Kwara State...Based on the available information, the likelihood of further spread among the local population is moderate. As the affected area is over 250 km from the nearest international border (Benin), the risk of regional spread is currently low. This event, nevertheless, further drains an already stretched public health system in Nigeria. Kwara State is recovering from a large cholera outbreak (last cases reported in week 27 of 2017), while the country continues to respond to several concurrent public health emergencies in other states.
