Zambia’s biggest-ever cholera outbreak kills almost 700 individuals

Zambia is currently facing its largest cholera outbreak in history, with a death toll reaching close to 700. Cholera, a highly contagious disease spread through contaminated food and water, can cause severe dehydration and lead to death within a matter of hours if left untreated.

The key to treating cholera is rehydration, as the disease causes severe diarrhea and vomiting which can quickly deplete the body of essential fluids. Without access to proper medical care and clean water, many people in Zambia are at risk of succumbing to this deadly illness.

Efforts are being made to contain the outbreak, with authorities working to provide clean drinking water and educate the public on proper hygiene practices. However, the scale of the outbreak poses a significant challenge, and more resources may be needed to effectively combat the spread of cholera in Zambia.
