Associated Press: As South Sudan’s civil war rages, cholera takes deadly toll
“…Since [South Sudan’s cholera] outbreak began one year ago, over 11,000 cases have been reported, including at least 190 deaths, according to the World Health Organization and South Sudan’s government. WHO says 2017 shows a slight increase in cases, which coincides with the recent surge of displaced people across the country as civil war moves well into its fourth year…” (Mednick, 6/29).
