A Nairobi Hospital staff has died and seven others are admitted following a cholera outbreak at the common health facility in the Kenyan capital.

The eight employees work in the hospital’s catering department.

The male worker died today morning after what his colleagues said was “a short illness.”

Sources at the hospital  told the nation media journalists that at least 23 cases of the water-borne disease, eight involving staff, had been treated at the facility in April alone.

The hospital’s cafeteria has been closed indefinitely as the management battles to contain the spread of the outbreak.
