    GOVERNMENT has declared the current cholera outbreak in Harare a State of Emergency, paving way for a full blown and concerted effort to battle the scourge that has claimed 20 lives and also affected 2000.

    This was announced Tuesday by Health and Child Care Minister Obadiah Moyo during a visit to Beatrice Infectious Diseases Hospital, where dozens are being treated.

    “We are declaring a state of emergency for Harare and not for the whole country but for Harare, this will then enable us to contain cholera and typhoid and whatever else is going on,” Moyo told journalists during the visit.

    He added, “We need to have that opportunity in order to be able to get rid of the problem as quickly as possible.


    “And like I said, we do not want any further death. So, if we don’t declare this disaster emergency, the situation will carry on having so many cases.
