The Oyo State government has called for vigilance and the adoption of precautionary measures to prevent the spread of a potential cholera outbreak in the state.

A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Dọtun Oyelade, quoted the health commissioner, Oluwaserimi Ajetunmobi, to have given the charge during her visit to a private hospital in Ibadan where two suspected cholera cases were receiving treatment.

Mrs Ajetunmobi noted that cholera is a bacterial infection spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated by the faeces of an infected person.

She explained that cholera is highly infectious and can cause severe acute watery diarrhea with severe dehydration, adding that it may be associated with nausea, profuse vomiting, and fever.

The health commissioner described the two suspected cases in Ibadan, which had been tracked down to a private facility in the state, as male workers who worked at a construction site in Lekki Peninsula in Lagos State

She noted that there was no cause for alarm as the ministry and other partners were on top of the situation.

Mrs Oluwaserimi reiterated the response efforts of the state government at ensuring that the state does not record casualties from the cholera outbreak from Lagos State.
