Copperbelt Province Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe

All cholera patients who had been receiving treatment at various centres in the Copperbelt province have been discharged

Copperbelt Province Permanent Secretary Bright Nundwe confirmed in a statement to ZANIS in Ndola today saying all 10 cholera patients have been treated and were discharged yesterday.

Mr. Nundwe said Copperbelt province has also not recorded any new case of cholera in the last 24 hours.

He said Copperbelt recorded a total of 11 cases of cholera since the epidemic broke out in the region last December.

He said out of the 11 patients, one was brought in dead.

“As seen from the number of cases, they have remained at 11 cumulatively. There is no cholera patient under treatment in all the districts on the Copperbelt,” Mr. Nundwe said.

The PS has since thanked the people in the Copperbelt province for cooperating with the team that has been cleaning markets and streets.

“All drainages in the cleaned markets have been unblocked and now storm water is flowing freely. I urge you to continue supporting the important exercise,” he said.

Mr. Nundwe hoped the level of cleanliness obtaining will be embraced by all the people in the province.

  1. One way of sustaining the gains and keeping the drains
    Clean and constantly unblocked is to ban use if plastics. I think we are the only country in the region that has not banned the use of plastics. Government needs to moved quickly and ban the use of disposable bottles for drinks and beverages.

  2. The only way to maintain cleanliness is for people to stop littering and for councils to use there limited funds on having low risk prisoners do some hard labour. It is not viable to assume that councils will be able to manage. Why isn’t there community service programs for petty offenders who instead of rotting in jail for the theft of a blanket and spoons can be fixing problems our councils can’t manage for free.
