Via news.com.au: Cholera outbreak in Guinea worsens. Excerpt:
An outbreak of cholera in Guinea has killed 82 people since February and is showing no signs of letting up, the country's health ministry says.
"A week ago we counted 60 dead and 2054 cases ... this week we have recorded 82 dead," Dr Sakoba Keita of the ministry's infectious diseases department told a press conference on Saturday.
The situation was "alarming", he added.
Coastal Basse-Guinee, particularly Forecariah in the southwest where the epidemic started in February, was the worst affected with 25 dead, followed by the capital Conakry with 17, officials said.
"In spite of the authorities' and international organisations' awareness campaign at all levels the cholera epidemic continues to rage in Guinea," Keita said.
Meanwhile, Zambian Watchdog reports that cholera has broken out in Mpulungu, with 52 suspected cases and one death.
