Five cases of Cholera confirmed in Murang’a

Five cases of cholera have been confirmed in two sub counties of Murang’a since October 11, when the government issued a notice on outbreak of the disease in some counties.

Three of the patients have been treated and released from the hospital, while the other two cases are still active.

Danson Mwangi, the County Health Promotion Officer, confirmed that the first three cases were reported in Gatura, Gatanga Sub County, and that the victims were among a group of people who attended a wedding in Limuru, Kiambu County.

He added that the other two cases were from Kandara Sub County’s Ithiru ward, and that the patients were still being treated in the hospital.

Mwangi said health officers have been deployed to monitor the situation and arrest spread of the disease.

“We have trained a team which is already on ground to educate members of the public about the disease and how they should prevent contracting cholera.

“What we are encouraging people to do is to frequently wash hands using clean water and soap and avoid eating cold foods,” he added.

The health officers, Mwangi noted, are following up the cases and ensuring residents with cholera-like symptoms get urgent medical attention.

“We have also provided a toll number 0800 721 020 for people to call when they suspect a cholera case so the medical team can take an urgent action.” Stated Mwangi.

He called upon neighbouring counties to take measures and ensure there is no spread of cholera from one county to the other.

“The first cases were from Kiambu county and it’s easy to control the disease from spreading to neighbouring counties. Murang’a is neighbouring Kiambu, Kirinyaga, Machakos and Nyeri counties.” Noted the Health Officer.

Chris Kinyanjui, the County Disease Surveillance Officer, for his part, decried the increased number of food establishments that do not adhere to health standards.

He observed that food hawking and food preparation in open areas for sale can easily lead to the spread of cholera because cleanliness standards are not met.

Kanyanjui urged residents to eat only from clean sources and to thoroughly wash their hands before eating.

“For those preparing food to sell in vibandas, we encourage them to ensure they have enough water to clean food before preparing it. The areas should also have toilets and cover their food all the time to avoid being contaminated by flies,” he remarked.
