Three people have been confirmed dead in the latest numbers released by the Health directorate of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly.

More than 200 cases have also been recorded in the past one month.

Health officials say the soaring numbers of cholera cases calls for urgent pragmatic action.

The director of health at the AMA, Dr. Simpson Anim Boateng who spoke to XYZ News said the severity of the cases has reduced a little.

“The cholera situation is now better, it has reduced for sometime but since the beginning of this month it has started rising.

“But we are enforcing the by-laws, we are educating the people and it is working, that is why now the number has reduced significantly” Dr. Anim Boateng said.
