For many years now, cholera has been a common occurrence in the North and far North Regions of Cameroon. Recurrent floods in this part of the country are the main cause of the resurgence of this and other water-borne diseases.
This year’s outbreak, which started in August, is causing havoc in more than 20 areas. Current government figures mention 2,019 patients, including 99 fatalities, with the locality of Mogodé, in the Far North Region, hardest hit.
