NIGERIA/2017/Cholera outbreak in Maiduguri


MSF is continuing to scale up its response to the cholera outbreak in Maiduguri.

MSF has established Cholera Treatment Unit (CTU) in Dala, which has so far admitted 70 patients. It has also set up an Oral Rehydration Point (ORP) in Muna camp and has a team of Community Health Workers (CHW) who are helping to find new cases and trace people who may have come into contact with affected patients.

The majority of cholera patients are coming from Muna Garage, a camp for people who have fled other parts of the state due to the ongoing conflict between the Nigerian armed forces and Boko Haram. Following heavy rains, the camp is partly flooded, making the already poor sanitary conditions even worse, which is an additional risk factor during a cholera outbreak. Another suspected case has been reported from another part of the city, highlighting the need for a coordinated and adapted response to stop further spread of the outbreak.
