Nigeria : Cholera spreads in Adamawa

Via The Punch :

" As the strike embarked by the Adamawa State civil servants enters its third week, the cholera outbreak in the state has continued to spread across the various local government areas.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the strike has crippled government’s efforts to contain the outbreak in about five local government areas of the state.

An investigation by NAN revealed that the disease, before the strike was reported, was only in Yola North Local Government Area, but it has now spread to five other local government areas.

The state Commissioner for Health, Hajia Zainab Kwanchi, confirmed the situation, but said that the government did not have an update on those affected because of the strike.

She said, “Currently, there is no official update on the outbreak as a result of the on-going workers’ strike.” "
