Cholera kills 73 Somali children

Via Press TV :

" Cholera has claimed the lives of at least another 73 Somali children in south Mogadishu, while dozens of others have been hospitalized, Press TV reports.

At least 187 others have been hospitalized in Banadir Hospital, a Press TV correspondent reported on Sunday.

Physicians say the number of Somalis dying from starvation in south Mogadishu is on the rise.

According to the World Health Organization, some 75 percent of all cases of highly infectious diarrhea are among children under the age of five.

Cholera is confirmed in the Banadir, Bay, Mudug and Lower Shabelle regions of Somalia, as the number of acute diarrhea cases has increased dramatically in the last few months."
