Dilli told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Wednesday in Yola, that no additional death has been recorded apart from the initial 12.

He said that sufficient drugs had been mobilised for the patients receiving treatment in Mubi General Hospital with the support of the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF.

Also speaking to NAN, the chairman of Mubi North LGA, Alhaji Musa Bello, lauded the prompt intervention by health officials and called on the public to give the needed support and cooperation.

Bello said the outbreak started following a heavy downpour that flooded many sources of water particularly wells in rural communities.

He called for more personal and environmental hygiene, particularly the need to stop open defecation.
