#Benuefloods: 3 dead, 110,000 risk contracting epidemic disease

Child Protection Network (CPN) and the Benue State Emergency Management Agency (BSEMA), have said three persons died in the recent flooding in the state, while 110 000 survivors risked contracting diseases. 

Premium Times reports that CPN said that: “There were three deaths, two adults and one child. 

At the government approved IDP Camp, up to 4 families are reported to be accommodated in one room. 

This suggests the possible risk of an epidemic as some hospitals in affected locations are reported to have shut down due to the flood,” the agency noted.
