National Police Service Commission Chairman Johnston Kavuludi led a team from NPSC to check on the 17 Police Officers admitted at KNH after the Cholera outbreak that affected some of the officers who were drawn from various parts of the country for deployment ahead of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the presidential election petition last Friday.

“We are pleased to see that most of the officers are getting better, we wish all of them a quick recovery so that they can resume to their duties” Said Mr. Kavuludi as he handed over a ‘Get Well Soon’ card to PC Francis Mwangombe on behalf  of the officers at the ward.

Two of the officers, out of the 17 admitted, have since been discharged.

The NPSC Chairperson was accompanied by NPSC Commissioner Mary Owour and NPSC CS/CEO Mr. Joseph V. Onyango.

Cholera Treatment and Prevention

According to the Webmed.com, Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It is caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with a bacterium called Vibrio cholerae. The disease is most common in places with poor sanitation.
To protect yourself and your family against Cholera, it is advised to use only water that has been boiled, water that has been chemically disinfected or bottled water. Cholera is highly treatable, but because dehydration can happen quickly, it's important to get cholera treatment immediately.
