District Health Officer for Karonga, Luise Tukula said three people have died of cholera in the district this year.

According to Tukula, cases are rising in the district because most people are drinking unprotected water from surrounding rivers which they also use for fishing.

He said the cholera patients have since been quarantined at Karonga hospital, Lupendu health centre and Nyungwe health centre.

Tukula however said the district is failing to deal with the rising cholera cases due to shortage of medicine, fuel and ambulances.

Meanwhile, Tukula has appealed to the general public to help the district with funds to buy medicine and fuel so that they should deal with the crisis.

The new cholera cases comes as some districts in the region, Karonga inclusive, have also been hit by floods.
