NCDC frowns at under-reporting of cholera outbreaks by states

The Director General (DG), of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (NCDC), Jide Idris, has raised concerns about under-reporting of cholera outbreaks in the country, citing reluctance among some state governments to fully disclose their status.

According to him, the reluctance may stem from concerns about stigma or the desire to avoid governance issues that could put the state in a negative light.

However, it is unclear why the NCDC has not provided updates since Sunday, June 23, 2024, despite the increasing trend in cases this month compared to previous months.
