Sachet Water: Strange Disease Hits Kano, Many Hospitalized
The National Agency for Food, Drug Administration, and Control (NAFDAC) has reported that several people have been hospitalized as a result of an unusual infectious illness outbreak in Kano State.
Mr. Shaba Muhammad, the agency’s State Coordinator, told reporters on Monday that the agency had collected water samples for laboratory analysis following the outbreak, according to NAN.
Muhammad said the agency received a report of manifestation of a strange disease suspected to be caused by drinking sachet water and locally processed drinks in the metropolis.
He explained that a team of officials of the agency had visited the infected persons at the Infectious Diseases Hospital (IDH), Kano, and some of the affected areas.
“Reports indicated that the infection involves sachet water and local drinks suspected to be prepared with expired and adulterated products.
“The infected persons developed symptoms such as severe vomiting and urine mixed with blood after drinking suspected sachet water and local drink.
“However, we have collected samples of the suspected water and the products for analysis to discover the cause of the disease,” he said.
Muhammad further disclosed that the agency had scaled up surveillance to check the circulation of fake and counterfeit products in the state.
He urged members of the public to be vigilant and check the label of the products.
