A total of 3,234 cases and 65 deaths have been reported from cholera outbreak in Kenya.
"Cumulatively 326 new cases were reported in the last one week. This is an increase from the previous week where 226 new cases were reported," Cabinet Secretary for Health James Macharia said in a statement.
He said six new deaths were reported in the last one week and pledged that the government will intensify surveillance, public awareness and provision of water treatment chemicals to halt cholera infections.
The cholera outbreak was initially reported in western Kenya but later spread to Nairobi, central and the coastal regions.
Macharia said a spike in cholera infections and deaths was recorded in the month of April following heavy downpour and flooding.
Cholera is an acute diarrheal disease that can kill within hours if left untreated.
