Tana River has at least 59 confirmed cases of cholera.

The majority of patients, according to Executive Committee Member for Health Javan Bonaya, are hospitalized in various healthcare facilities.

Cases that have been reported thus far, according to him, are in Bangale sub-Madogo county’s division.

In a statement to the media yesterday, Bonaya said that the cases were discovered after a Kenya Certificate of Primary Education candidate at Boji Primary School passed away from problems related to cholera.

Isaac Khalif, the county director of education, added that four KCPE applicants from Boji were compelled to take their exam in the hospital after testing positive for the illness.

To prevent infection, residents have been asked to maintain high standards of hygiene.
