Cholera in South Sudan may be declining

Cholera control efforts in South Sudan may be slowing the spread of this disease in the Upper Nile, Eastern, and Central Equatoria States. While the number of reported cases is declining in Juba, the disease remains widespread in Eastern Equatoria. Nationwide there have been 123 deaths. 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.
