Cholera Outbreak in Accra

User Rating:  / 1

The Adabraka Polyclinic in Accra has recorded 33 cholera cases in two weeks.

The cholera outbreak was noticed by the hospital staff two weeks ago but no death has since been recorded.

Victims were said to have contracted the disease from the Adabraka, Odorna, Mamobi and Kasoa-Ofankor areas.

Most of affected persons have since said to have been discharged after treatment.

The Osu- Klottey Sub- metro Medical Director of Health, Dr. Bright Davies- Teye, told Joy News TV the outbreak is due to unclean environment and unhygienic practices by the public, with most of the patients contracting the sickness from food they bought from food vendors in town.

Dr. Davies- Teye cautioned the public to be particular about where they buy their food from and also encouraged them to practice good personal hygiene and avoid dumping fecal matter in gutters.

He assured the situation is under control and that people should not panic.

The Greater Accra Regional Health Director of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Edward Antwi issued a statement earlier in the week alerting the public about reported cases of cholera in parts of the region.
