Ministry of Health has confirmed that there is an 'active Cholera outbreak' in some parts of Uganda's capital, Kampala.

At least seven people have tested positive for the bacterial disease and are undergoing treatment in Naguru, a statement said on Friday.

The ministry says it's continuing to undertake serious interventions, including intensified case management and surveillance of Cholera cases.

Most Cholera cases are originating from Rubaga and Makindye, according to the ministry.

UN and partners aim to slash 90 per cent of cholera deaths by 2030

An isolation ward has been set up at China-Uganda Friendship Hospital in Naguru.

Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe diarrhoea and dehydration, which can lead to death if untreated.

The bacterial disease is caused by eating contaminated food or water.

Researchers estimate that there are 1.3 million to 4.0 million cases of cholera each year, and 21000 to 143000 deaths worldwide due to cholera.
