National ‘Disaster’ stadium turned into cholera centre


The National (Disaster) Heroes Stadium in Lusaka has been turned into a Cholera centre to cater for the increasing number of new cholera cases being recorded in Lusaka.
Health Minister Chitalu Chilufya has stated that the move is also aimed at centralizing intervention measures in Lusaka.
He said the existing cholera centres will remain operational but will only attend to paediatric patients while adults will only be received then transferred to the stadium.
The number of new cases has continued to increase and in the last 24 hours 156 new cholera cases have been recorded
