The Federal Capital Territory Administration (FCTA) has said that seven deaths had been recorded from the outbreak of cholera in four communities in the territory.
The Director of Public Health in the Health and Human Services Secretariat (FCTA), Dr Humphrey Okoroukwu, confirmed this to newsmen in Abuja.
Okoroukwu said two deaths were recorded at Kubwa village; one at Sauka, another two deaths at Mpape and two at Ushafa.
However, he said that the outbreak in Kwali and Kuje Local Area Councils did not claim any live, while the situation in the two area councils and those at Sauka, Mpape and Kubwa villages had been curtailed.
He said the outbreak at Ushafa is the most recent, and “all efforts have been put in place by the administration to address it”.
