Casablanca (ADV) – At least 28 deaths were reported following the outbreak of Cholera across Nigeria’s northwest state Kano in the past seven months.

The state confirmed 400 suspected cases of acute watery diarrhoea with 50 confirmed cases of cholera across the 33 local government areas. 28 deaths out of the 50 cases were recorded.

Cholera is a highly virulent disease characterized in its most severe form by a sudden onset of acute watery diarrhoea that can lead to death by severe dehydration.

The outbreak of cholera is quite common in Nigeria because of the poor water supply systems, especially in densely populated areas.
