Fear is rampant among residents in Migori as a new sexually transmitted disease has been spreading.
The Jakadala outbreak claim, which has been the talk of the county for the past one week has thrown majority of the Migori county residents into a panic with many claiming the disease kills its victims within a week even though no cases of death have been reported.

However, Migori county executive in charge of Health Dr. Isca Olouch has said that they are not able to substantiate the Sexually Transmitted Disease dubbed Jakadalla by locals that have caused panic in the area.

The Health CEC said the locals should treat it as a rumour but at the same time appealed to the locals to avoid multiple partners and unprotected sex.

She said condoms are provided for free at public hospital facilities and therefore the residents should use it to protect themselves from sexually transmitted diseases.

Stay safe this Festive season!!
