Cholera continues to be a major risk in Mozambique

More than 3,500 cases and 37 deaths due to cholera have been reported in the provinces of Nampula, Niassa Tete and Zambézia. 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.
