Health Minister warns against cholera, other diseases

The unpleasant forecast of the outbreak of cholera in the country in the coming months is the focus of the Easter message from the Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole. Adewole said that Nigerians should put up a collective responsibility through conscious sensitisation and awareness on the impact of the future.

Cholera is an acute, diarrheal illness caused by infection of the intestine with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. An estimated three to five million cases and over 100,000 deaths occur each year around the world. The infection is often mild or without symptoms, but can sometimes be severe, and even fatal.

In Nigeria, there has been some outbreaks of cholera reported in a few states of the federation, but current forecast about impending outbreak, is worrisome.

To tackle non communicable diseases including cholera and meningitis, which is currently plaguing the country, Adewole called on Nigerians to take measures to end dirtiness, and embrace healthy living. These measures are a prerequisite to godliness, he said.

Adewole urged Nigerians to dedicate themselves in principle and attitude to medical advice in a bid to stay healthy.

He said:“The unpleasant forecast of the outbreak of Cholera in the coming months should be a collective responsibility of all Nigerians through conscious sensitisation and awareness.”

“Desist from conducts and habits that can bring sickness and catastrophic death into our society,” he said, adding, “We should report unpleasant conditions to appropriate medical authorities, visit our certified hospitals and avoid self-medication.
