People Receive Cholera Treatment under Trees in Katsina State, as Death Toll hits 100

Amnesty International has said over 1000 Nigerians have died from cholera due to lack of portable water.

The Group said this on Twitter on Tuesday, as they reacted to photos posted by Sahara Reporters showing some Katsina State residents receiving treatment in the open.

Amnesty International said, “So far Cholera had killed more than 1,178 Nigerians. Surge in Cholera is as a result of lack of water, sanitation and poverty. Malnutrition drives transmission of the disease among children. Healthcare is a human right.”

According to reports, the Katsina State residents were seen receiving treatment for the recent cholera outbreak under trees in Maiadua, with the death toll now over 100 as the outbreak spreads to more local government areas.
