Akinlabi emphasized the importance of proper hand hygiene, stressing that washing hands with soap and water is the most effective way to prevent the spread of cholera. “Hand hygiene is crucial in preventing the transmission of cholera, as the bacteria can easily spread through contaminated feces, food, and water,” he explained. “We must make hand washing a habit, especially after using the toilet and before eating.”

He also highlighted the need for proper waste management and disposal, citing the importance of proper toilet facilities and garbage collection. “Improper waste disposal can contaminate water sources, leading to the spread of cholera,” he warned. “We must ensure our community has access to proper toilet facilities and garbage collection services.”

Akinlabi also advised residents to ensure their water sources are safe and potable, emphasizing the need for water purification tablets or boiling water before consumption.
