Sudan cholera campaign moves to protect Khartoum state 

KHARTOUM, 07 Nov. - (ANA) - In Sudan, a campaign is under way to prevent the spread of a deadly cholera outbreak to Khartoum state, UN medics said on Wednesday.  

Latest figures from Sudan’s health ministry indicate that there have been 332 suspected cases of cholera and eight deaths, mainly in Blue Nile and Sennar States, since the waterborne disease was declared on 2 September.  

Two cases of cholera were confirmed in Khartoum State in mid-October. “The risk of cholera spreading is very real,” said Dr Naeema Al Gasseer, World Health Organization (WHO) Representative in Sudan.   

She added that the disease could have serious consequences if it is not properly managed in Khartoum state.  - (ANA) -
