The Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) said the death toll from the cholera epidemic has risen to 79.

The Nigerian Center for Disease Control (NCDC) said in a statement that the cholera epidemic has continued to spread in 43 regions of the country’s 12 states since January.

The report indicated that during this period, 1336 cases of cholera were registered in these regions, and the death toll as a result of the epidemic increased to 79 people.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has announced that cases of cholera in Africa have reached alarming proportions.

Cholera, caused by the bacterium Vibrio and transmitted through food and water, causes severe diarrhea and dehydration.

The disease can be fatal if left untreated.

In addition to the lack of clean water in Nigeria, poor medical intervention increases the risk of disease and death.

Epidemics such as malaria, polio, typhoid fever and monkeypox virus are also common in the country.
