On Wednesday, September 11, the United Nations announced forty-one suspected cases of Cholera in Sudan.

The minister of Health in Sudan, Akram Ali al-Tom confirmed the report.

However, there are four cholera cases in Blue Nile State, a southern Sudanese State bordering the countries of South Sudan and Ethiopia.

Meanwhile, three of them died during the past two weeks.

According to the Health Ministry’s head of public relations, thirty-seven people suffered from “acute watery diarrhea”.

In addition, four came positive for the disease out of the six samples obtained from patients with acute diarrhea.

Due to floods and rains in the area, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement (SPLM) declared Blue Nile State a natural disaster zone.

Consequently, the movement has called on local, regional and international organizations to deliver humanitarian aid.

This is very important to save affected children, women and the elderly.
