Jigawa State Government says it has intensified efforts to curtail the spread of cholera in the state as the state records over 500 deaths within four months.

This is according to the Primary Healthcare Manager, Ringim Local Government, Surajo Sa’id at the two days sensitization campaign to community volunteers on the measures of cholera prevention.

He said the training is a partnership between the Jigawa State Government and Save the Children International SCI, to create awareness on the danger and preventive measures of cholera to rural dwellers.

Saga Gist reports that over 500 people have died out of the over 20,000 cholera cases recorded across the state.

Surajo explained that over 1000 cholera cases have been recorded in Ringim Local Government out of which 50 persons lost their lives, mostly children.

He said the training will help in minimising the cholera outbreak, especially in rural areas.

A total of 150 persons are being trained across 30 communities in the 10 LGAs mostly hit by the cholera outbreak in the state.
