Dozens have died of the deadly Cholera disease in Kenya. Intelligence shows an outbreak of the disease in slums could have catastrophic ramifications.
Kenya is likely to be challenged by Cholera, an infectious and often fatal bacterial disease of the small intestine, typically contracted from infected water supplies and causing severe vomiting and diarrhea.
The challenge lies in the rains and the poor drainage system in cities like Nairobi. The areas mapped by intelligence experts are slums and areas with poor drainage and water system.
Slum dwellers are exposed to dirty water during severe rainfall and in the event contamination of water manifests, the ramifications will be very severe.
8 People are confirmed dead in Kibera slum’s Line-Saba. 100 have been hospitalized with Cholera symptoms.
If untreated cholera can be fatal in a matter of hours leading to death.
