Public health expert Mr Nurudden Bello, who teaches at the Shehu Idris College of Health Science and Technology, Makarfi, Kaduna State, has cautioned Nigerians living in flood prone areas and along river banks to beware of water borne diseases.



Speaking to newsmen Bello on Wednesday in Kaduna, said the advice was necessary to save lives in the area.


Adding that it is important for residents to take measures to protect their water sources from bee polluted so as not to contact diseases. 

According to him, the safest way for such residents is to evacuate to safer environment. 

He however, called on relevant government agencies to educate the residents on the implications of flooding to health, which may manifest in Cholera, Diarrhoea, Typhoid and other diseases due to contaminated water sources and habitat.

Bello attributed the increase in water borne disease especially during rainy season to unprotected and improper managed soakaways in communities. 


He also urged other humanitarian organizations such as NEMA, SEMA, the Red Cross, Network of Climate and Environmental Reporters to raise awareness of the populace on proper hygiene  to safeguard their health.
