Residents to get chlorine tablets as cholera bites

12 May 2015, 16:27 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - The county government of Nyeri will supply residents with chlorine tablets free of charge as fear of cholera outbreak rages.

The County executive secretary in charge of health services, Charles Githinji said the initiative will cost more than KES 300 000 and will benefit those who have no access to treated or piped water.

Speaking during a press conference in his office Tuesday, Githinji said Public Health Officers will launch a campaign to educate public on good hygiene practices.

He further banned hawking of food within the County.

Githinji who was accompanied by Health chief officer, Peter Munyua, explained that he issued the ban due to increased interaction and proximity with counties where Cholera has been reported.

The disease has been reported in Kirinyaga, Murang’a, Nakuru, Nairobi and Kiambu Counties where more than 2 000 people have been affected and 42 deaths reported.

“The disease has spread to several counties including the neighbouring Murang’a County which has recorded 278 cases and two deaths. There is increased danger of cross-border transmission due to close proximity and frequent interaction between Nyeri and other affected Counties,” said Githinji.

Githinji further directed Public Health Officers to re-inspect all food outlets within the County to ensure there is heightened sanitation and hygiene.

He however advised the public to drink boiled water, dispose human waste properly, avoid eating hawked foods or in unlicensed outlets and keep cooked food covered to avoid contamination by flies.
