1 Min Read

Due to the spread of the cholera epidemic that has affected 29 districts, the government of Malawi has chosen to delay the opening of primary and secondary schools for at least 2 weeks.

Beginning in March 2022, the number of cholera diseases and deaths persists to rise. Indeed, the latest update of the number of cases issued by the government, showed that cholera had killed 410 people since February.

The number of infections peaked last October, according to the director of the Ministry of Health, Storm Kabuluzi.

The first round of vaccinations was done after Malawi received 2.9 million doses of cholera vaccine from the United Nations, pending preparations for the second round of vaccinations.
