Tragedy struck in Lagos as a Nigerian woman, recently returned from Canada, succumbed to cholera amidst a reported outbreak of the viral disease in the state.

The heartbreaking news was shared by an X user who disclosed the details of the woman's demise. According to the source, the deceased had been experiencing symptoms typical of cholera, including severe purging, vomiting, and weakness, before her untimely death.

The incident underscores the severity of the cholera outbreak currently plaguing parts of Lagos. Health authorities have been on high alert following an increase in reported cases, with efforts intensified to contain the spread of the disease.


Cholera is a highly contagious waterborne disease caused by ingesting food or water contaminated with the Vibrio cholerae bacterium. Symptoms typically include profuse watery diarrhea, vomiting, and dehydration, which can lead to death if not promptly treated.

Authorities are urging residents to prioritize personal hygiene, ensure access to clean and safe drinking water, and seek medical attention immediately if symptoms of cholera manifest.

The deceased woman's identity and further details surrounding her return from Canada have not been disclosed at this time. The incident serves as a poignant reminder of the importance of public health measures in preventing and managing disease outbreaks, particularly during periods of heightened travel and celebration.

As the community mourns her loss, health officials continue to work tirelessly to contain the cholera outbreak and safeguard the well-being of all residents in affected areas.
