He disclosed that: “In the state, 576 cases have been reported in Gulani LGA, 485 cases in Gujba LGA and 450 cases in Damaturu LGA. In Fune LGA, 181 cases were reported and 67 cases were reported in Potiskum LGA. Out of 97 samples collected and tested using cholera RDTs, 82 (84.5%) were positive and 15 (15%) were negative.

“Again, 9 (47%) out of 19 samples cultured were positive for Vibrio Cholera. However, the 9 positive samples were taken to national reference laboratory for quality checks and further analysis samples and Vibrio Cholera O1 (Inaba) serotype was isolated in 4 out of the 9 samples,” Collins said.

He stated that compared with that of the previous day, “three cases were reported from Gulani, six cases were reported from Damaturu. No case has been reported from Gujba in six days, none was reported from Fune in about two weeks while Potiskum has not reported any case in over six weeks”.
