Mozambique cholera outbreak hits 1,000 cases
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.
