A looming water shortage threatens cholera response activities at Naguru hospital. Administrators at the health facility have said that they do not have enough water to run the facility beyond the next 12 hours following a crisis that has hit parts of Kampala, over the last two days. Some of the affected areas include, Naguru, Bukoto, Ntinda and Gayaza. The shortage comes days after the ministry of Health confirmed an outbreak of cholera in parts of Kampala, with several cases recorded from Kabowa, Rubaga division. So far 16 people are receiving treatment in the isolation ward at Naguru hospital.
Health experts who carried out an inspection on affected areas attributed the outbreak to poor sanitation and hygiene.
