Four reported dead in Nakuru cholera outbreak

28 April 2015, 09:23 Robert Chepkwony

Nakuru - Nakuru County government’s health department has put its health officers on high alert following a suspected cholera outbreak that has claimed four lives so far.

Those dead include a child and two people who died while receiving treatment at the Nakuru’s Rift Valley Provincial General Hospital (PGH), while the fourth died at home.

Dr Kabii Mungai, the County’s health executive said nine other patients suspected to be suffering from the disease have been isolated at the PGH to avoid contaminating other patients.

He added that the County government has banned any food hawking across the County.

“We have lost three members through food poisoning in less than a week,” he added, hinting that the County government will supply chlorine to every household for water treatment.

He urged anyone who has diarrhea or cholera symptoms to seek medical attention to avoid further losses of lives.

Of the nine patients at the provincial hospital, six are from Rhonda, two Bondeni and one from KITTI estate in Nakuru.

Dr Mungai further called on members of the public to ensure they drink boiled water and also wash their hands after visiting the toilet.
