Zambia : Typhoid claims another life

Via Daily Mail :

" ANOTHER person has died of typhoid in Mufulira’s Mupambe township.

This brings to three the number of people who have died since the waterborne disease broke out in December last year.

Ministry of Health spokesperson Reuben Mbewe confirmed this in an interview on Tuesday.

Dr Mbewe said the man, whose identity he withheld, died at Malcolm Watson Hospital over the weekend.

“We recorded one death over the weekend. One patient died of typhoid in the male ward over the weekend. This is the third death we have recorded since the outbreak of the disease last year,” Dr Mbewe said."
