Nigeria : Cholera spreads to FCT, kills two

An article from Nigerian Bulletin :

" The fast-spreading cholera disease has claimed two lives in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, out of the reported 137 cases reported in health centres across the six area councils.

The Special Assistant on Communications to the Minister of Health, Ms. Rakiya Zubairu, confirmed this in a telephone interview with one of our correspondents, on Monday.

The two deaths were recorded at Gwagwalada area council, which is a densely populated area of the FCT.

The minister’s aide said that the ministry was not relenting on its awareness campaign and education of the public to embrace basic personal hygiene."
