Cholera cases increase in northern Mozambique

Health authorities have issued a high alert as cholera continues to spread in Mozambique, especially in the province of Tete. There have been at least 28 deaths among the more than 2,400 people infected. The outbreak is associated with severe flooding across the region. The district of Mutarara may be seriously affected.

All travellers to any area where cholera has been reported can reduce the risk of exposure to this infection by strictly observing all food and water precautions. If gastrointestinal symptoms (e.g., vomiting and profuse watery diarrhoea) develop while visiting the affected area, travellers should seek medical care at once.
