Mozam­bi­can and in­ter­na­tional health work­ers raced on Mon­day to con­tain the out­break of cholera in the cy­clone-hit city of Beira and sur­round­ing ar­eas, where cases of the dis­ease has jumped to more than 1,000.

There has been one death from cholera and of the re­ported cases 97 re­main in treat­ment cen­ters, with oth­ers re­leased, Mozam­bique’s health direc­tor Us­sein Isse an­nounced. The fig­ures are an in­di­ca­tion that cholera is spread­ing but is be­ing brought un­der con­trol, say health work­ers.

The over­all cy­clone death toll in Mozam­bique has risen to 518.
