Papua New Guinea : Up to 3,000 affected in PNG cholera outbreak

Via Australia Network News :

" The cholera outbreak in Papua New Guinea has now affected almost 3,000 people.

The PNG Health Department believes this latest outbreak has been sparked by unhygienic conditions in coastal villages and have appealed to affected communities to clean their homes, safely discard rubbish, boil drinking water and improve hand hygiene.

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