TYPHOID has been contained in Kabwe as the number has remained at 222 for the past two days.
The disease broke out two weeks ago and has mostly affected residents in Bwacha Chimanimani, and Ngungu townships, which have no running water.
Typhoid is an infectious bacterial fever, which causes severe intestinal irritation. The disease is caused by a bacterium Salmonella typhi.
Residents in the three townships have been depending on water from shallow wells.
Kabwe District Commissioner Patrick Chishala said there had not been any new cases and was happy that only two patients were still under treatment in hospital.
Mr Chishala added that tests conducted on the water being supplied by Lukanga Water and Sewerage Company showed that the water was safe.
