Mr Chisenga said the council had prioritised cleaning Chifubu constituency to prevent the further spread of the disease.

"I wish to report that all the three cases reported in Ndola as of today (yesterday), no one is still being observed because they have all been treated and discharged. Out of the three , two cases were imported and only one case came from Chifubu and that is why we want to prioritise and clean the area," he said.

Mr Chisenga said this was all in an effort to clean the surroundings and clear the garbage to prevent the spread of Cholera.
