Cholera outbreak: Hotel association urges members to take precautionary measures

The Nigeria Hotel Association (NHA) on Monday advised hoteliers across the country to take precautionary measures against the spread of cholera.

Chief Patrick Anyanwu, National President of NHA, gave the advice in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

According to him, each hotel management should upscale and maintain hygienic environment in their kitchens and dinner sections, following the increase in the spread of the disease.

He advised the hoteliers to take conscious effort in adhering to the preventive measures outlined by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the government.

“This is a delicate period for everyone.

“We should all adhere to improving our personal hygiene, prioritise food safety, clean the hotel premises well enough, disinfect often and always sensitise staff on these preventive measures.

“We should not be agents for the spread of cholera,” he said.

Data released by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) says the country has recorded 65 confirmed cases of cholera, resulting in over 30 deaths from Jan. 1 to June 11 in 30 states, with over 1,141 suspected cases.
