The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says Cholera has claimed no fewer than 23 people out of the 530 suspected cases in Borno.

The UN Agency, in a statement, said that the Cholera outbreak was first reported by the State’s Ministry of Health on August 16, 2017.

The outbreak is mainly in Muna garage, a camp hosting at least 20,000 internally displaced persons on the outskirts of the state capital, Maiduguri.

The latest figures suggested a 4.3 per cent fatality rate – well above the one percent rate that the World Health Organization rates as an emergency.
