Cholera kills 3 year-old girl in Nasarawa

A three-year-old girl in a community at Umasha development area of Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State was killed by suspected cholera outbreak.

It would be recalled that recently, there was a reported case of cholera outbreak said to have claimed lives in the same community where one person reportedly died.

A reliable source who did want his name in print told our correspondent that the baby girl was suspected to have died of cholera because she had suffered bouts of vomiting and diarrhoea.

He expressed concerns that the community largely depends on a pond for domestic water supply, which they also share with cattle and other animals.
