Cyclone survivors suffer disease outbreak in Southern African

Intro

The survivors of the South African Cyclone, have been threatened with the outbreak of a disease, which had aggravated the already dire conditions facing millions of survivors following the powerful tropical cyclone which ravaged southern Africa 10 days ago.

Cyclone Idai smashed into Mozambique’s coast unleashing hurricane-force wind and rain that flooded swathes of the poor country before battering eastern Zimbabwe — killing 705 people across the two nations.

“It is inevitable that cases of cholera and malaria will arise. In many areas we are already fighting with malaria cases,” said Land Minister Celso Correia at a briefing in Beira, 1,000 kilometres (620 miles) northeast of the capital Maputo.
