Cholera outbreak kills Four children in central Somalia

A watery diarrhea outbreak has claimed the lives of four Somali kids in Bulo-Burde town in Hiiraan province over the past few hours, according to medics.

Scores of children who were infected by the disease have been admitted in an emergency temporary health centre in the town, where they are now being treated.

Residents are worried that the district and the nearby suburbs could be just as vulnerable to the Cholera outbreak due to lack of sufficient medicines and hospitals in the area.

The number of acute watery diarrhea cases continues to rise in south-central Somalia, as the increasing scarcity of water combined with recent flooding in the south leads to use of contaminated water sources.
