Cholera Outbreak: Oyo Govt. Calls For Adoption Of Precautionary Measures

The Oyo State Government has issued a call for more vigilance and adoption of precautionary measures to prevent the spread of potential cholera outbreak in the state.


The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Oluwaserimi Ajetunmobi gave the charge during a visit to a private hospital in Ibadan where two suspected cholera cases were receiving treatment.

She noted that Cholera is a bacterial infection spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated by the faeces (poop) of an infected person.

She explained that cholera is highly infectious and can cause severe acute watery diarrhoea with severe dehydration.

The Commissioner described the two suspected cases in Ibadan, which had been tracked down to a private facility in the state as male workers at a construction site in Lekki Peninsula from Lagos State

She called for calm as she reiterated the response efforts of the State Government through the Ministry at ensuring that the state does not record casualties from the cholera outbreak from Lagos State.

The Commissioner therefore appealed to all to be safety conscious and always drink water only from clean sources, practice good personal hand hygiene by frequently washing hands with soap and water.

She maintained that anyone with the symptoms mentioned above should not partake in self-medication but present themselves at the nearest healthcare facility immediately.
