At least 59 police officers in Nairobi have been admitted to hospital with cholera. There is an ongoing attempt, by a facility where they police were staying, as to where they contracted the disease. 

This is typical in all of the Third World as well as much of the Western World, including the USA. Blame is top priority while the disease spreads.


So, where did the police get infected? It seems they ate food prepared by infected people. So, there is undoubtedly an epidemic in progress or in the making. The back history of such an outbreak is ALWAYS huge compared to what is actually reported.

Thus, if you are planning to travel to Nairobi, take no chances as to where you eat, sleep, water you drink, and where you use toilets. Drink ONLY bottled beverages FROM THE BOTTLE, and NO ICE. Ice machines are deadly during epidemics. 

Cholera is passed very easily from person to person. If you come down with diarrhea that is white (the color and texture of rice water), go at once to the Emergency Room at a hospital. You have cholera. Waiting could result in death.

People in other nations: If you have friends coming who arrive from Nairobi, take special precautions to keep them isolated for several days, and encourage them to report any health discomforts at once. If they are infected, symptoms should appear within five days. Remember, your friends from Kenya have NO rights to take risks with you or your family.

Currently, the cholera outbreak is active in two counties, namely Garissa and Nairobi. As of 17 July 2017, a total of 1216 suspected cases including 14 deaths (case fatality rate: 1.2%) have been reported since 1 January 2017. In the week ending 16 July 2017, a total of 38 cases with no deaths were reported. So, the 59 new cases indicate a sudden increase calling for serious caution.

Cholera is endemic to Somalia and The Yemen, so refugees from those nations to Kenya bring cholera with them.

The disease is a killer, but Kenya has plenty of experience with cholera, and the death rate there is very low. This is a tribute to fiercely sudden reactions by health officials to any outbreak.
