  • The Zimbabwean cholera outbreak was a cholera epidemic that originated in Zimbabwe in August 2008, swept across the country and spread to Botswana, Mozambique, South Africa and Zambia. By 10 January 2010 there had been 98,741 reported cases and 4,293 deaths making it the deadliest African cholera outbreak since 1993. The Zimbabwean government declared the outbreak a national emergency and requested international aid. Although the epidemic was contained by late 2009, the poor condition of sanitation in Zimbabwe remains a matter of regional concern.
