LAGOS: Doubtless cases of collar jumped in North East Nigeria where Boko Haram's violence has forced tens of thousands of people to seek refuge in full camps, the Norwegian Refugee Council said on Monday.
The humanitarian group said that the rapidly spreading event has affected 10,000 people and 175 people have died in the northeast of Adamawa, Borno and Yobe from the beginning of November 2018.
"One of the main causes of the cause is the congestion in the camps that make it difficult to provide adequate water, sanitation and hygiene services," said Janet Cherono, the program manager of the NRC in Maiduguri, the state capital of Borno.
"The rainy season has also exacerbated the conditions. If no more land is provided urgently for campus evacuation and the construction of health and sanitation facilities, Nigeria is steering another cause of globe again in 2019."
Nigeria has seen regular cases of collar since Boko Haram has taken arms against the government in 2009.
Over 1,8 million people have been replaced by the bloody conflicts, which have claimed more than 27,000 lives and everyday life in the Llyn Chad region.
Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram, is home to 243,000 people who have been displaced in full camps with poor hygiene facilities, creating a fruitful environment to spread cholera, the NRC said.
Cholesterol is caused without bacteriotic transmitted through contaminated food or drinking water. It causes acute diarrhea, with children at special risk.
Nigeria's largest oil producer in Africa is suffering from a high rate of water-borne illnesses due to derelict infrastructure and sub-investment.
President Muhammadu Buhari announced "urgent situation" in the country's water hygiene sector, describing statistics on open cover and access to pyramid water as "interference". – – AFP
