COPPERBELT has this year recorded 1,688 cases of typhoid, while 696 people have suffered dog bites.
The province however has not recorded any cases of the cholera pandemic.
Copperbelt Permanent Secretary Stanford Msichili who officiated at the 2012 provincial epidemics committee meeting held at Savory Hotel in Ndola, said measles cases had reached 400.
Mr Msichili said four deaths had so far been recorded from the 1,688 typhoid cases while one person had died from the 696 dog bites.
The permanent secretary expressed sadness with the figures but was however happy with the fact that the province had not recorded any cholera cases since April, last year.
"It is gratifying to note that Copperbelt Province has not recorded any cases of cholera since April 2011 and with this achievement we should maintain the status quo," he said.
Mr Msichili said as part of its commitment to improve health standards, the Patriotic Front (PF) Government has released K204 billion to the major hospitals to facilitate the recruitment of at least 2,000 front line medical staff.
"The Government has allocated K204 billion to three hospitals namely; University Teaching Hospital (UTH), Ndola Central Hospital and Kitwe General Hospital to facilitate the net recruitment of not less than 2,000 front line medical personnel," he said.
Provincial Medical Officer Chandwa Ng'ambi said the meeting was a catalyst to consolidating measures to prevent and control the outbreak of diseases.
Dr Ng'ambi said the Ministry of Health had put in place measures to ensure the number of cholera cases on the Copperbelt remained at zero.
