LUSAKA Province has now recorded 44 cases of cholera in Kanyama, Bauleni, Kabanana and Chilenje townships.
Provincial medical officer Kennedy Malama said in an interview yesterday that currently, four of the cholera patients are admitted to Kanyama cholera treatment centre.
“We have recorded a total of 44 cases of cholera in Lusaka district,” he said.
Dr Malama warned that the cholera outbreak will spread further if people do not practise good hygiene.
He said the Ministry of Health is now focusing away from Kanyama because of the new cases that have been recorded in the recent past elsewhere.
More than 20 schools have been closed as Government tries to contain the highly-contagious waterborne disease.
