Cholera affects Ossi Primary School in Uganda

Located in the Parombo sub-county, 10 pupils in Ossi Primary School have been infected with the disease. This have led to the subsequent closure of the school by the Nebbi District authorities to help control the spread of the disease.

This outbreak initially started last month in the Panyimur sub-county, spreading to both Parombo and Erussi sub-counties. 169 cases have been registered in health units and Nebbi hospital so far with 5 deaths.
