[Guinean news] Cholera strikes again

The UN's IRIN news service has a piece on the resurgence of cholera in the country since the beginning of the rainy season. The health ministry has reported over 600 cases this year.

"The latest wave is occurring because of poor sanitation during the main rainy season and a lack of potable water," said Emmanuel Roland Malano, who head's the government's division of epidemiological diseases.
