No fewer than 20 persons have died in about 181 cases recorded since cholera outbreak hit some parts of Katsina State in the last two weeks. This is just as the State House of Assembly said the officials of the state Ministry of Health and the State Primary Health Care Development Agency (SPHCDA) were still making efforts to curtail the spread of the disease in the 34 local government areas of the state.
The chairman of the House committee on the disease, Tasiu Musa Maigari, representing Zango constituency, made this known yesterday while submitting the committee’s report. The committee recommended that the state should provide more potable water supply in the affected communities and step up sensitization of the residents of the communities while making case for suspected patients of the disease to be rushed to the nearest health facilities and quarantine of cholera patients for medication.
The law makers adopted the report after deliberation during the House plenary and the Speaker of the assembly, Abubakar Yahaya Kusada, directed the House Clerk to transmit the four point recommendations to the executive for implementation. It would be recalled that the committee was set up the House penultimate Monday following a motion of urgent public importance moved by Muhammad Abubakar, member representing Funtua where no fewer than five persons had died of the disease.
