Nigeria’s cholera death toll hits 816
The Nigeria Centre for Disease Control on Monday said medical interventions would not stop the outbreak of Cholera in the country.
This is just as it put the current death toll at 816.
This was contained in a statement by the centre’s Director General, Chikwe Ihekweazu, and titled ‘Cholera in Nigeria: Urgent call to strengthen water, sanitation and hygiene.’
According to the statement, the NCDC is working with other agencies and partners to ensure that the spread of the disease is adequately curtailed.
