Cholera Kills 24 Persons In Bayelsa State by Amotolongbo(f): 2:46pm On Apr 05
THE Bayelsa State Government has announced that 24 persons have died as a result of cholera outbreak in the state.

It was gathered on Saturday that about 200 cases of the epidemic were recorded in 30 communities with the coastal Southern Ijaw Local Government Area being the worst-hit.

The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Pabara Newton-Igwele, while confirming the incident, said the state government had mobilised its Rapid Response Team to mitigate the spread of the cholera disease.

He said the government in partnership with the World Health Organisation had also adopted some measures to preserve the lives of the people during the period.

Newton-Igwele said, “Some of the measures include the decentralisation of the RRT in the local government areas since last October; distribution of commodities for the containment of the outbreak; ongoing search to identity active cases and the provision of oral cholera vaccines for the vaccination of people in the affected areas.”


He further stated that people within the identified 30 communities had been vaccinated through a partnership between the state government and the Niger Delta Development Commission.

Tinubu is not the governor of Bayelsa state, nor is he in charge of their health and public water departments

The same state that produced the immediate past president, the same with one of the highest federal allocation and with just 8 local government areas to cater for. Yet that cannot provide clean water for their citizens.

What are they still waiting for?

They should lock down Bayelsa immediately for ONE full Year.

Everybody in bayelsa should start wearing Hazmat suits to prevent the further spread of the Virus.

Even Covid19 never killed 24 people in a day in Bayelsa state..Yet foolish Nigerians think covid19 is the major threats to their life with all sort of formalities and laws and observances being attached to it...when we need to pay more attention to provision of portable water, environmental sanitation, cleanliness, quality assessment of food products, investment in health care facility
.
May we have sense one day..
