Nearly 10,000 cholera cases, 150 deaths in Tanzania: WHO

A major cholera outbreak in Tanzania has now infected nearly 10,000 people and killed 150, the World Health Organization said Friday, voicing concern that predicted flooding risked spreading the disease internationally. Since the beginning of the outbreak in August, at least 9,871 people have become infected and 150 have died, the UN health agency said, citing laboratory confirmed figures from Tanzanian health authorities.
