Papua New Guinea : Number of cholera victims in PNG still rising

Via Radio Australia :

" The number of people affected by the recent cholera outbreak in Papua New Guinea is close to two thousand.The original point of the outbreak is Daru, a tiny island off the coast of PNG's Western Province, where around one thousand cases have been documented.

The situation is stabilizing there but it's now on the move .. emerging in villiages on the mainland between two districts .. South Fly and Middle Fly.And while attaining reliable data is a challenge .. it's clear the numbers affected continue to steadily rise.

Restrictions remain in place for travel between Australia's Torres Strait Islands and PNG."
