Malawi: cholera outbreak
Since March 2022, Malawi has been experiencing the largest cholera outbreak reported in the last decade. As at 29 November, the cumulative confirmed cases and deaths were 10,652 and 310, respectively, with 10,073 reported recoveries and 269 people currently in treatment centres. Malawi needs medical supplies, vaccines, health worker training, and awareness campaigns on cholera to tackle the outbreak. People lack clean water and access to hygiene and sanitation. There is a need for water point rehabilitation. In early November, the country received 2.9 million doses of the cholera vaccine.
