The death toll for the Cholera outbreak in Malawi continues to rise, with the number increasing to 19 from 17 within two days.
National figures further indicate that over 700 people are receiving medical treatment, rising from 693 reported on Sunday.
This is despite health authorities declaring that eight districts are Cholera free.
The worst hit districts are Lilongwe and Karonga which have a similar death toll of 7 each.
The latest deaths have been recorded in Salima and Dedza district, which was earlier put on the Cholera free list.
Poor access to safe drinking water and sanitation are being described as the major causes of Cholera.
Spokesperson for the Ministry of Heath Joshua Malango earlier told Capital FM on government’s interventions to contain the further spread of the disease.
