The Commissioner for Health, Dr. Oluwaserimi Ajetunmobi gave the charge during a visit to a private hospital in Ibadan where two suspected cholera cases were receiving treatment.

She noted that Cholera is a bacterial infection spread by eating or drinking food or water contaminated by the faeces (poop) of an infected person.

She explained that cholera is highly infectious and can cause severe acute watery diarrhoea with severe dehydration.

The Commissioner described the two suspected cases in Ibadan, which had been tracked down to a private facility in the state as male workers at a construction site in Lekki Peninsula from Lagos State.

She called for calm as she reiterated the response efforts of the State Government through the Ministry at ensuring that the state does not record casualties from the cholera outbreak from Lagos State.
