South Africa is currently experiencing a Cholera Outbreak in Gauteng and Free State.
We call on communities to wash their hands with soap and water or alcohol-based sanitiser when handling food and after using the toilet. Use safe water by boiling it in a clean container for at least 1 minute or mix 1 teaspoon of household bleach with 20-25 litres of water and let it stand for at least 2 hours. Should you present with the symptoms of diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, stomach cramps and dehydration, go to your nearest health facility to receive help.You can also keep yourself hydrated by preparingoral re-hydration solution. Boil 1 litre of water, add 8 teaspoon of sugar and ½ a teaspoon of salt and mix well.
