Dr Waqainabete says this is mainly due to the work happening with other stakeholders around the country to ensure that people are safe from these communicable diseases.

He adds that people will need to work together in these nationwide clean up campaigns to completely eradicate communicable diseases from our communities.

“Because at the end of the day, communicable disease knows no barrier. When it spreads, it spreads it does not understand ethnicity or religion and we have to collectively work together as a nation to continue to suppress this.”

There have been 7 deaths recorded due to Leptospirosis, Dengue Fever and Typhoid.
