“Given the risk of this outbreak escalating rapidly across the state, the Ministry of Health has commenced active case finding across all LGAs in the state. Surveillance teams have been deployed to support the outbreak response at the LGA level.“These teams are actively searching for and investigating suspected cases in health facilities, informal treatment centres and within communities. This is in line with earlier developed emergency operations plan to tackle a possible cholera outbreak in the state.

“Cholera is a preventable and treatable epidemic-prone disease that is transmitted by eating or drinking contaminated food or water. The number of cholera cases tends to increase during the rainy season and the risk of death from cholera is very high when treatment is delayed. Hence, it is very important to visit a health facility if symptoms of cholera such as watery diarrhoea and vomiting are observed,” Filani advised.

The state government, however, urged members of the public to be aware of the risk of the disease and adhere to preventive measures including boiling and storing water in clean and safe containers before drinking, preparing, cooking and storing food safely. headtopics.com
