Two die of cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe


At least two people died after a cholera outbreak in North West Zimbabwe between fears that the message of rains will trigger more cases and fatalities.

According to the Healthy Officials on Tuesday, November 27, 2018, night, the last outbreak has hit 26 people in a mining area in the Darwin district in the north of the capital Harare where a similar outbreak killed scores of people between July and September.

The officials said the first cases were reported on Sunday, November 25, 2018, and so far two people died.

Most of the affected are artisans of minors who work under scaled conditions. The outbreak comes about two months after health officials have declared the horror episode defeated.

It also comes as the first rains of the 2018/19 farming season have just kummens following a late start.

The rainy season is usually associated with the spread of water-based diseases such as diarrhea and cholera.
