Solomon Islands health authorities have confirmed six children have died in an outbreak of diarrhoea that's spread across six provinces and they're warning it's not yet reached its peak.
The outbreak is believed to have begun back in November but has spread across the country during the annual Christmas and New Year travel.
Dr Chris Becha, the Ministry of Health's emergency and operations committee chair, says while they're working to contain the outbreak, it's feared the worst is perhaps not yet over.
