Cholera reaches Lilongwe

30

Barely a week after cholera resurfaced in the country, another case of cholera has been registered in Malawi capital city Lilongwe.

Kamuzu Central Hospital

Cholera scare in Malawi.

According to the hospital’s public relations officer Trinity Kaombe, the hospital is keeping a patient who is suspected to be suffering from cholera.

“It is true that we are keeping a business man at this hospital who is suspected to be suffering from cholera, we have collected specimen and the result will be known at the close of business today to see if the man has indeed contracted cholera,” said Kaombe.

She said that the man resides in Area 22 in the city but on December 31 he was at Machinga hospital where he was also treated as a cholera patient.

On January 2 he came back home and went to Bwaila Hospital after noticing some changes within himself and the hospital admitted him to see if he has contracted cholera again.

Kaombe further said that management have set aside two teams to go on a sensitization campaign at the man’s business place on how people can avoid this fatal disease from spreading further.
