PARIS, JANUARY 24, 2017: (DGW) Confirmed reports from the authorities of Jos University Teaching hospital say the hospital has been flooded with  no fewer than 280 victims of snakebites in holes of some bush rodents particularly rabbits and are currently undergoing treatment at Comprehensive Health Centre, Zamko, Langtang North Local Government Area of Plateau State.
Dr. Nyam Azi, the hospital’s medical officer, disclosed this to journalists saying 280 victims were received as of November 2016
Of the recent cases received by the centre numbering 25, one victim has died since his case was presented too late.

He said the victims are mainly children who while in search of game deep their fingers into holes only to get bitten by snakes in holes. 

According to him, “For the adults, the situation was worse during the harvest season because people went to the farms without putting on boots and gloves. The hospital is struggling to cope though the Federal Government had provided 100 vials of anti-snake venom. 
“We get lots of cases and the vials given by government are not sufficient; during the hot season, the 100 vials can be exhausted in five days. A vial of anti-snake venom costs N27,000 and many victims, who could not afford that amount, usually seek alternative treatments.
“Some go to native doctors leading to high mortality; many people just die at home. We have challenged them to do the economic arithmetic; a rat is not worth N27,000. It costs just about N50 to N70. 

“We have also advised them to stop moving around at night; where they must, they should use torch lights and try to avoid snakes’ possible habitats.”
