PNG's cholera outbreak spreads

Updated 6 January 2012, 11:30 AEDT

The number of people affected by the recent cholera outbreak in Papua New Guinea is close to two thousand.

The original point of the outbreak is Daru, a tiny island off the coast of PNG's Western Province, where around one thousand cases have been documented. The situation is stabilizing there but it's now on the move emerging in villiages on the mainland between two districts.
