todayFebruary 1, 2024 6

Background
share close

The Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention has tied the worst outbreak of cholera in three years to climate change, saying adverse weather is raising the risk of this disease faster than in the rest of the world.

The increase in cases comes even as Africa is the region least responsible for climate change, but one of the hardest hit.
