    Cholera kills eight people in Nairobi.

    Published on

    The Ministry of Health reports that eight individuals have lost their lives in Nairobi as a direct result of the cholera outbreak.

    The hospital accounted for six of the fatalities, while the other two happened outside of healthcare.

    A statement from the ministry claims that four new cases have been reported in the Embakasi East sub-county in the previous 24 hours.

    There have been 160 confirmed cases of cholera in the nation’s capital so far, with the Ministry of Health estimating that 13 of them are foreign variants.

    Statistics show that out of the total, 91 are male and 69 are female.

    The ministry reports that “more men than females have been afflicted by cholera,” with those between the ages of 21 and 30 now being the worst hit, followed by those between the ages of 51 and 60.

    The intestinal infection with the Vibrio cholera bacteria is what causes cholera, which results in severe diarrheal sickness.

    By ingesting cholera germs, which may be found in contaminated food or water, people might get ill.
