“Due to the evacuation of the majority of the refugees from Kagunga and the improved water and sanitation situation at the epi- centers—Kagunga village and Lake Tanganyika Stadium—cases being treated are no longer as critical as they were in the initial stages of the outbreak,” said UNHCR’s Representative in Tanzania, Joyce Mends-Cole.
Kagunga, 26 May 2015 – The ongoing cholera outbreak in western Tanzania appears to be improving thanks to intensive national and international efforts, but the risk of transmission remains high due to limited access to shelter, toilets, water and essential medical care. As of 25 May, the total number of cases diagnosed and treated was 4408 and no deaths have been reported between 21-24 May.

1. KHOST & PAKTIKA UPDATE
When the refugee influx began from North Waziristan Agency into Khost and Paktika provinces, many humanitarian agencies thought the situation would be short-term.
