The cholera bacterium is usually found in water or food sources that have been contaminated by feces (poop) from a person infected with cholera. Cholera is most likely to be found and spread in places with inadequate water treatment, poor sanitation, and inadequate hygiene.

The last sentence is scary considering what is happening at the Nbi Hospital.



Seems like the patients are just the employees at the cafeteria. Did someone bring them food from home?

Might be that one person got contaminated at home and came to work and didn't wash their hands so contaminated everything they came into contact with.

These guys cannot even run a public toilet; They can't collect garbage; They can't enforce building standards; they can't provide reliable emergency services; they can't reliably provide clean drinking water to the city's inhabitants; they cannot manage the sewerage in many parts of the city.

Probably the only thing they can do well is collect parking fees, i have to give them that.

This is Nairobi, in 2019

This kind of news is hardly surprising.

After the expose by Enock Sikolia last week, only now is NEMA pretending to do its work.

Na kama kawaida, it will be business as usual after only a few days/weeks/months...

Cholera is back.

1 dead after consuming contaminated food from a wedding.

Let me remind you

Quote:
Cholera – transmitted when people ingest food or water contaminated with faecal matter containing cholera germs – can be deadly if not treated immediately.

A wedding last weekend turned tragic after one family member died and more than 40 guests fell ill from food poisoning and cholera.

At least 10 guests and family members are admitted in various Nairobi hospitals after testing positive to cholera.

Yesterday, at least three of them were admitted at Mater Hospital, three at Mama Lucy Hospital and four at the Kenyatta National Hospital.


A comment on the article wrote:
You can add another outside catering firm called Pots Delight currently at least 10 of my close relatives are recovering in hospitals across Nairobi all suffering from a bout of Cholera after eating food at a house party over the same wkend of 10th August. Cholera is a disease last seen in some countries over 100 years ago. Here in Kenya cholera was unheard of in the 1990’s but as a people as developed as we may think we are in terms of health care we have regressed. There is no way any President can be walking around talking of billions going to Universal HealthCare coverage for all when a disease like cholera which is all about how you handle fecal matter is still killing people. Isnt it ironic that for all the development and rapid population growth in Kenya over the last 20 years or so no one has talked of building any sewer system. We have new buildings going over 30 floors up yet the sewer system built by the colonial mzungu and refurbished by Nyayo in the 1980’s is all Nairobi and Kenya has. Yet we somehow expect diseases like cholera will just disappear. Seriously i dont know what happened to us?


The county Public health workers are deep in the pockets of vendors as we die from ancient diseases.

I always try to avoid eating in restaurants, especially if the reputation of the restaurant is low.
I know that you need to drink a lot, because with cholera there is diarrhea.
Drink water, only clean. Vibrio cholerae bacteria are often found in water, so it is best to drink bottled water.

Its embarrassing in this day and age for people to be consuming food laced with pooh.Outside catering should be banned esp in Nairobi where water is scarce.
