Cholera is killing people in Northern Nigeria

The Federal Ministry of Health had earlier reported that about 350 Nigerians, mostly children in the Northern part of Nigeria had died from Cholera. Just yesterday, UN disputed that figure. They say it's over 1, 500 deaths this year alone. They say the outbreak this year is the highest since 2004 and it's spreading to new geographical areas.

The World Health Organization (WHO), in its global report says 1,191 deaths, have been reported between January 4 and October 3 this year, in 144 local government areas in 15 states, including the Federal Capital Territory.

Not good!

Not only in Northern Nigeria but also in parts of Southern Nigeria e.g. Rivers, Cross Rivers, Ondo, Ogun and Osun States.
