Six people have tested positive for Cholera in the Tema Metropolis since the outbreak of the epidemic in the country.

Mr Harvey Akafu, the Information Officer of the Tema Metropolitan Health Directorate, told the GNA on Wednesday that no deaths had been recorded.

Mr Akafu said the recorded cases were from Tema Manhean, Kpone and Tema Community One and its surroundings.

He said the victims are responding well to treatment.

Mr Akafu urged the residents in the Metropolis to observe basic hygienic practices and report any diarrhoea and vomiting cases to the nearest health facility.

Cholera is caused by small germs that lead to a victim passing loose and watery stools as well as vomiting.
