Migori county health director Joseph Gondi said 3 victims died at a sub-district hospital and another four are at their homes while waiting to be taken to hospital.
“We have taken vomit and fecal samples to the Kenya Medical Research Institute laboratory for confirmation before we pronounce the situation a cholera outbreak,” Gondi told journalists in Migori.
Similar cases have been received from various regions in the county and health workers have been mobilised to help contain the situation which was detected in the last 24 hours.
Health experts warned that the outbreak is likely to continue spreading due to lack of safe drinking water in the area. – Bernama, February 11, 2015.
