STATEMENT ON CHOLERA OUTBREAK AT THE MULTIMEDIA UNIVERSITY
Ten adults housed at the Multimedia University were yesterday taken ill with severe abdominal upset and diarrhea, and are currently admitted at Sinai Hospital in Rongai, Kajiado County.
Rapid diagnostic tests for cholera have been done on the ten and found positive. All are quarantined at the said hospital awaiting confirmatory tests.
I have this morning dispatched a disease surveillance team, public health officers and health promotion officers to the sites to investigate the causes of the outbreak and also the state of the sick.
So far there is no cause for alarm as the situation is under control.
I will be sharing with you updates as I receive them.
Wish you all a blessed Sunday.
