Cholera epidemic has killed more than 100 people in Niger

The cholera epidemic in Niger, Africa, has killed 104 so far. In total, 2,874 patients have already been counted, the Nigerien Ministry of Health reported Friday.

With the help of Médecins Sans Frontières, the United Nations and the European Union, Niger is trying to cope with the epidemic by focusing on extra awareness campaigns and by disinfecting public places and public transport.

Due to the flooding resulting from the heavy rainfall that has plagued Niger since June, experts fear a flare-up of the highly contagious disease.

A previous outbreak in 2018 killed 78 people.
