Ecologist James Koninga anesthetises a Mastomys Natalensis rodent with Isoflurane ether in the village of Jormu in southeastern Sierra Leone February 8, 2011. Lassa fever, named after the Nigerian town where it was first identified in 1969, is among a U.S. list of "category A" diseases - deemed to have the potential for major public health impact - alongside anthrax and botulism. The disease is carried by the Mastomys Natalensis rodent, found across sub-Saharan Africa and often eaten as a source of protein. It infects an estimated 300,000-500,000 people each year, and kills about 5,000. Picture taken February 8, 2011.

American researcher Matt Boisen works in the Lassa fever laboratory at Kenema Government Hospital in southeastern Sierra Leone, February 7, 2011. Boisen's laboratory in southeastern Sierra Leone is an outpost of the U.S. government's "war on terror", funded by a surge in bio-defence spending since the airplane and anthrax attacks on New York and Washington a decade ago. American research aims to limit the vulnerability of western interests to biological agents. In the case of Lassa swift and simple diagnosis is seen as critical to doing that.

The regular stream of Lassa fever patients, kept in an isolation ward, provide researchers with access to the virus. Staff hope their new diagnostic product will eventually be cheap, simple and robust enough to take into the field - comparable to current tests for malaria or HIV - replacing complicated laboratory procedures.

NIGERIAN MAN DIED ON LASSA FEVER IN WIESBADEN. 
Outside view of the 'Dr.Horst-Schmidt Clinic' in Wiesbaden April 4. A 57-year-old Nigerian man died of the highly infectious tropical disease Lassa Fever at the clinic, health authorities in the state of Hesse said on Tuesday. A spokeswoman from the state health authority said the unnamed victim was admitted to a clinic for tests on March 27 but doctors only discovered he had Lassa Fever after his death on Saturday. Health officials were now monitoring everyone who had come into contact with the dead man, but the spokeswoman said it was most unlikely that he had passed the disease on to anyone else.
