The rising Cholera death toll in Sironko has prompted district authorities to procure four emergency ambulances to reinforce the health team that is fighting the outbreak.
This follows the death of five people with 54 others still fighting for their lives at various health centers.
Sironko Resident District Commissioner Mr. Moses Kigayi tells KFM that the four ambulances will help transport the affected people to the isolation centers at Budadiri Health Center IV and Mutufu Government Prison.
He adds that more interventions are being made to avoid further spread of the disease.
In Moroto district one death has been confirmed while 10 other patients are being monitored at the isolation center.
Meanwhile Moroto Municipal Council authorities have ordered the closure of all restaurants and bars as one of the measures to curb further spread of the disease.
