Via Monster and Critics: Cholera outbreak confirmed in Harare suburb. Excerpt:
Authorities in Zimbabwe on Monday confirmed an outbreak of cholera in Mbare, one of Harare's oldest suburbs, with at least 20 households having reportedly been affected.
The report comes amid fears that the disease may be spreading again across the poverty-stricken country.
Portia Munangazira, a doctor and director in Zimbabwe's Ministry of Health, told the German Press Agency dpa Monday that Harare was still struggling to eradicate the pandemic, which claimed over 4,000 lives and affected thousands more nationwide in 2008.
'We learnt a lot from the experience of 2008/2009, but we can't stop it (cholera). We still have determinants of cholera,' she said.
