The British government has updated its travel advice for Kenya, adding information related to the cluster of cholera cases at Nairobi Hospital.

Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It is caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with a bacterium called Vibrio cholerae.

The updated travel advice reads:

Due to a current cluster of cases of cholera at the Nairobi Hospital in April 2019, you should consider the need for urgent treatment and use the Nairobi Hospital if travelling to other emergency departments would cause delay in reaching appropriate medical care. See the National Travel Health Network and Centre website for further information.
