The number of staff affected by Cholera at the Nairobi Hospital has risen to 52, sources say.

The staff are currently hospitalized at the hospital.

The new revelations contradict an earlier statement issued by the hospital that the facility was in control of the situation.

On Monday, a staff member reportedly died of cholera due to negligence at the facility.

The management, however, issued a statement to dismiss the claims of cholera within the premier health facility.

On Tuesday, the hospital, reported 23 cases of cholera patients admitted at the facility, further dismissing death reports.

“We have established that in the last 10 days the hospital admitted, offered treatment and discharged 23 cholera patients. Eight of those reported cases were from The Nairobi Hospital staff,” acting CEO Chris Abeid said in a statement .

“No patient is at risk and we are continuously monitoring. All precautionary measures are in place,” the statement added.

The hospital is yet to issue a statement on the 52 cases.

Cholera is spread by ingesting faecal matter.

It causes acute diarrhea and can kill within hours if not treated.
