Some tips to keep in mind include:

Wash your hands before every meal

Ensure that food served to you in a kibandaski is hot. This kills cholera bacteria

Avoid drinking water from taps next to sewers or crowded areas. Avoid water at a kibandaski altogether.

Stay safe and cook your own food and drink your own water.
