Current Campaigns Health Press Releases


Ekurhuleni’s health practitioners are crisscrossing the City educating communities about cholera prevention, treatment, and care. 

As part of the campaign, on Friday, 10 March, a team visited the Germiston Clinic to explain cholera, its side effects, symptoms and how it can be prevented.

Patients visiting the facility got to learn about the importance of hygiene, especially when handling and storing water.

Pleased with the information shared was Lerato Moloi who said, “I am so glad to have acquired such useful information especially since we have heard that there are cases of cholera in Ekurhuleni. It is actually very scary that one can easily ignore the seriousness of cholera and just assume I have a minor tummy bug – and get seriously ill and even lose life in the process.”

Currently, the City has three reported cases of cholera. The City’s environmental health practitioners are visiting informal settlements, crèches, and clinics across Ekurhuleni to try and curb the spread of cholera.

Below is a list of the areas where the education and awareness campaigns will be held.
