Cholera cases hit 200

Over 200 incidents of cholera have now been recorded in the Central Region from the earlier reported 157 cases.

The Ghana Health Service said it was working to forestall a repeat of what happened in 2014, when a nationwide outbreak led to 150 deaths out of 17,000 recorded cases.

The most recent cases have been attributed to infected persons transmitting the disease to others.

Speaking to Class News, the Deputy Regional Director of Health in charge of public health at the Ghana Heath Service, Dr Kweku Karikari, said combating the epidemic was a joint responsibility of the assembly and the public.
