Nine persons have died from a cholera outbreak in the Akpoha community, Afikpo North local government area of Ebonyi State, while many others have been hospitalized and are receiving treatment in various hospitals in the state.

Official reports put the number of those hospitalized at 30 but residents say the number may be higher.

The state government on Sunday scrambled a State Rapid Response Team to the community to help bring the situation under control.

The Chairperson of the local government Uchenna Ibiam led the team which comprised staff of the state ministry of Health and that of the National Center For Disease Control NCDC, to the community where he addressed the village heads, men, women, and youth, expressing concerns over the unexpected deaths, some of whom were children.

Ibiam urged the people of the area to adhere strictly to medical advice from health professionals to stem the outbreak and not to panic as the situation is under control.
