UNICEF Warns Against Complacency As Zimbabwe Cholera Toll Keeps Rising

The United Nations Children's Fund said Friday that despite indications the cholera epidemic in Zimbabwe is losing momentum, it remains concerned as the death toll continues to rise.

The latest statistics on the epidemic from the World Health Organization through Thursday showed a total of 1,822 deaths from over 36,671 cases.

There were 632 new cases Thursday, and 28new deaths were reported.

UNICEF Communications Officer Tsitsi Singizi told reporter Patience Rusere of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that it is too early to say conditions have stabilized.
