Typhoid Case In Hatcliffe Extension

Harare City Council has advised residents to continue practising good hygiene following a typhoid case reported in Hatcliffe Extension over the weekend.

Hatcliffe Extension is considered one of Harare’s high-risk areas, with City Health Director Dr Prosper Chonzi saying it is important for residents to practice good hygiene. He said:

We now urge residents to wash hands all the time like what we have been encouraging before.

Since it’s a waterborne disease we also encourage boiling of water all times so that it won’t spread.

Typhoid is a waterborne disease which has afflicted Harare residents from time to time especially those living in high-density suburbs such as Glen View and Budiriro.
