- Nigeria – North-East Flash Update No. 5 – Cholera Outbreak, 21 September 2018
An estimated 7.7 million people across Adamawa, Borno and Yobe states of Nigeria are in need of lifesaving assistance as a result of years of ongoing violence in the North-East of the country.
With telecommunications infrastructure having been severely damaged by the conflict, provision and restoration of communications services are required to support the response community.
Since its activation in November 2016, the Emergency Telecommunications Sector has been providing shared communications services to humanitarians in North-East Nigeria. These services enable a more efficient and safer humanitarian response in areas with limited or unavailable services from local communications service providers.
A cholera outbreak has been declared in Yobe State, north-east Nigeria, by the State Ministry of Health, two weeks after a cholera outbreak was declared in neighboring Borno State.
The cumulative number of recorded cases in both states currently stands at 3,126 including 97 deaths.
In Yobe State a total of 989 cases of suspected cholera have been recorded in five local government areas (LGAs), including 61 deaths, as of 20 September 2018. This represents a case fatality rate of 6.2 per cent.
Since the onset of hostilities on 26 August, at least 3,845 families (19,225 individuals) have been displaced. The majority of displaced civilians continue to find refuge with friends and relatives living in safer areas, while others are temporarily sheltered in schools or public buildings. UNHCR and its partner LibAid continue to monitor the situation and provide assistance to affected families in Tripoli and other locations including in Zawiya, Surman, Regdallen, Sabratha, Tarhouna, Bani Walid and Yefren.

In a rural village in Nigeria, a group of women knock on the door of new mother Hauwa Abubakar. She emerges from within, exhausted from the routine of feeding, sleeping, and caring for a little one. But she has extra reason than most to be tired.
A few months ago, she became mother to triplets, two baby girls and one baby boy.
The women visiting her are from her local community, but today they have come in their roles as polio vaccinators.

D. R. Congo: general increase at the country level. Five provinces gathered up to 90% of the cases and deaths. These are the epidemic provinces of the Great Kasai, and the endemic provinces of South Kivu and Tanganyika. The Great Kasai region reported more than half of all the cases and deaths. The persistent outbreak is related to a lack of access to safe water, difficulties in case management (lack of medical supply), and a general lack of community interventions.
