UN: Cholera outbreak claims 248 lives in South Sudan

At least 248 people have died from cholera outbreak across 19 counties in South Sudan since the initial outbreak was officially declared in June 2016, a UN agency said on Sunday.

The UN Office for Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said in its weekly bulletin that as at May 15, 8,160 cholera cases had been reported since the initial case was recorded on June 18, 2016.

"While the outbreak initially spread to counties along the River Nile, counties most recently affected are increasingly distant from the River. Nine out of the 19 counties affected by the cholera outbreak since June 2016 have reported cholera cases in the past four weeks and are considered to have active transmission of the disease," OCHA said.
