Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Bright NUNDWE says Kitwe district has three confirmed cholera cases of which two are children and one male adult.
The children who were admitted two days ago aged eight months and one year four months are from Chipata and Buchi Townships, respectively.
He said the only cholera patient who was admitted at Masala Cholera Centre in Ndola has been discharged.
Mr. Nundwe said the discharged patient in Ndola has fully recovered and sent home though he had no fixed abode at the time of admission as he was reportedly sleeping at Masala market where it is suspected he contracted cholera.
He said Ndola has not recorded any new case in the last six days but has intensified the cleaning up of market places and collection of garbage.
The PS added that all local authorities in the province have been engaged to help remove street vendors from the streets to facilitate cleaning.
Meanwhile Mr. Nundwe said sensitization of communities on prevention of cholera has continued while public gatherings are being discouraged as per directive by the ministry of health.
