The cholera outbreak in Nigeria has claimed 781 lives from 3,000 reported cases, the Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu, has said.

The minister made the statement in Abuja, on Tuesday, at a media briefing to intimate Nigerians on current trends and intervention strategies mapped out for the epidemic.

Chukwu also said that of the 11 affected states, Katsina State reported the highest number of casualties, with 175 deaths from 310 reported cases.

``Bauchi, Borno, Adamawa, Gombe, Yobe, Taraba, Jigawa, Kaduna are the most affected states after Katsina State,’’ Chukwu said.

The minister said the intervention strategies would include measures to ensure that after this episode, the country would not record any outbreak of cholera that would record such casualties.

He stressed the need for proper disposal of faeces and the need to provide safe water for the people.

Chukwu said that the short-term measures included the procurement of vaccines in the endemic areas, as well as more intravenous fluids for hospitals where cholera patients were being treated.

It's so sad as this outbreak has gone this far and the government of the land did anot rrest the situation at the initial after so many warning, now many lives has be lost. Moreso I think the people in these region plays around with flies a lot because my first experience in the particular area some years back was shocking seen people dinning with flies all around them as if flies are pets this is so awful something serious needs to be done may be government of the state should enforce a mandatory clean up sanitation day that is if stealing and corruption will allow them to do it that remain the big question. In a such flies invested environ like these area it obvious and certain that cholea like disease is just at the door to strike.

Na like this una wan carry CHOP? D other tym na bird flu, now cholera. 9ja no mugus we knw all dz thins.
Now who did this study? Doctors on strike? When last was research allowance granted to Researchers? Stop deceiving us with al dz fake values. Yes, fake!!
Please Minister, you can do us well by telling us the publication this values were made and also the person that did this research. Don't forget bringing back d doctors from strike(atleast to treat patients that have malaria, diarrhea etc etc, oh! and your'cholera') rather than raisin unnecessary alarm of cholera outbreak.
Show us where to read the values ourselves not smtn fabricated in an office in Abuja. Thanks

now watch the conspiracy closely,


soon a temporary measure for cholera is a wave of cholera vaccinations that will temporarily stop the situation.

the greatest hoax ever, people do not take any cholera vaccinations oh
its another conspiracy
A simple natural cure for cholera is squeezing lemon juice into water with lime and sipping it.

This smells so similar to the avian flu that took on europe and america,they want us africans to take their vaccines
Re: Very Painful, Cholera Death Toll Now 781 - Minister by daylae(m): 8:49pm On Sep 08, 2010
With all said already,i think the problem still lies with the people. Simple task of cleaningness would have averted these scandalous situation.Its unbelievable that some houses still see it as no issue having a toilet,thereby defecating randomly anywhere. Am not surprise the north is severely hit though,cus lack of access to clean and portable water has always been a big issue in the not,compare to the south.
Now the problem of poor disaster management is the major hurdle. I only hope they curtail the situation before it toured the whole country.
Re: Very Painful, Cholera Death Toll Now 781 - Minister by ayo84(m): 8:54pm On Sep 08, 2010
information is power
has anyone heard of moringa oliferia,locally called zogale,its a plant that can be used for water purification,its grows all over nigeria,its seeds can be used for water purification locally without public water systems using alum and co,

besides i smell serious conspiracy here, why suddenly an outbreak occurs, i still smell a rat,that suggests a biological warfare.someone wants peple to take vaccinations again,so they bring up a lethal dose of a cholera virus.

God help us , if they have poisoned our water supply systems in the cities,cos like thats the fastest way to start an epidemic
Re: Very Painful, Cholera Death Toll Now 781 - Minister by ada24: 9:20pm On Sep 08, 2010
how is this a conspiracy? there was major flooding in many west African countries and when there is flooding cholera tends to follow.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/physical_health/conditions/cholera.shtml

and there are vaccines available for cholera
Re: Very Painful, Cholera Death Toll Now 781 - Minister by daylae(m): 9:43pm On Sep 08, 2010
@ayo89: dont' know what you mean by conspiracy;cus it is evident that the problem is due to poor sanitation. I don't want to believe you're one of those rebelling against efforts of immunization/vaccination,cus you shold know better.

This is becoming rather serious, everyday Children die of too sicknesses such as this.

Wonder when the president and other officials will get it fixed.

watch this video,immunization is a fraud,
an insult to nature
our bodies are complex systems that can stand against any disease.they create higher strains of germs,viruses and diseases and they make us take vaccines,these vaccines have been responsible for deaths of millions, you dont get to hear about them,bcoz they control what you hear in the media.

there is a serious crisis about world population and they have to reduce it drastically.

Simple cure to cholera is using lemon and lime in water ,why dont talk about hygine,why are they emphaing monre on VACCINES,VACCINES

when avian flu was ravaging usa,nobody talked about that the simple cure to it was natural garlic,but all we ehard was vaccines,vaccines .

ok - i hope u didn't have any vaccinations when u were born. i guess we should let all babies born from now on to stop being vaccinated - i guess things like measles, mumps and rubella, TB, meningitis, polio, yellow fever, etc are not real and don't kill babies!!!

i think the reason they are talking about vaccines is cos lets be honest its not like the government are going to start building social housing for the affected people with adequate sanitation, how do u educate people who don't even have a toilet in their home about water hygine
