The International Federation of the Red Cross says there are hopes that Zimbabwe's cholera outbreak, which has spilled over into South Africa, may be under control. This is according to the federation’s communications manager, Matthew Cochran.
The comments come at the time when the National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) pointed out that other isolated cases in the country, one death in Durban and a few cases in Gauteng, are all linked to the Zimbabwe outbreak.
Limpopo health spokesperson Phuti Seloba expected to have an update on the number of cases. Cochran says that according to the federation's information was that 167 people had been admitted and treated, with three people dead.
