A state of vigilance has been declared in Oyo state after the government raised an alarm over a potential cholera outbreak.


The alert came as the Commissioner for Health, Oluwaserimi Ajetunmobi, visited a private hospital in Ibadan where two male workers who had travelled down from Lagos State were receiving treatment, prompting concerns about the potential for a wider outbreak.


Ajetunmobi who noted that there was no cause for alarm, said the ministry and other partners are on top of the situation, to ensure that the state does not record casualties from the cholera outbreak from Lagos State.


The commissioner, therefore, appealed to all to be safety conscious and always drink water only from clean sources, and practice good personal hand hygiene by frequently washing hands with soap and water.
