Cape Coast Cholera outbreak: Over 20 people infected

The cholera outbreak in the Central regional capital Cape Coast has taken a new twist as over 20 people have been infected and hospitalized.

On Monday, three people were reported dead from the menace.

The deaths were recorded at the Ewim polyclinic and the Cape Coast metro hospital.

According to Starr News’ Central regional correspondent Kweku Baah-Acheamfuor, some hospitals in the other districts have also started recording cases of the disease which has created panic in the region.

Areas including the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo-Abirem municipality, Mfanteman municipality, Twifo Atti Morquah districts have all recorded cases of cholera.

Meanwhile, the health directorate in both Cape Coast and at the regional level are tight lipped on the matter.

According to Baah-Acheamfuor, authorities have instructed the disease control team in charge of public education to cease media interaction, especially on casualties recorded until further notice.

The move is to curb unnecessary panic in the society with respect to deaths.
