The Public Health Agency of Nigeria said a total of 72,910 suspected cases have been recorded in 27 states, as well as in the federal capital since the outbreak.
There are many factors that lead to the high number of epidemic diseases and deaths resulting from them in Nigeria, including the lack of clean water, and the lack of timely and effective medical intervention.
Nigeria witnesses many of these epidemic diseases such as polio, typhoid fever, malaria, diarrhea and monkeypox virus.
The world witnessed seven stages of the cholera epidemic over a period of about 150 years.
The first stages of this epidemic appeared in Russia in 1817, and it caused the death of about one million people, and the main reason for its spread was the mixing of drinking water with human excreta.
And this epidemic spread from Asia to Europe through British soldiers residing in India, and then moved from Britain to Spain, Africa, Indonesia, China, Japan, Germany and America.
Although a vaccine was discovered for it in 1885, the cholera epidemic continued to appear after that at different stages of time.
