Likouala-The cholera epidemic has killed twelve people on five hundred cases recorded since early this year in the Likouala region (Congo), near the Equator province (DRC), say, on Monday 19 March, government sources in the Republic of Congo.

They believe this epidemic is manifested partly in the sites of some one hundred and twenty thousand refugees from the DRC living for three years in the promiscuity of this region in neighboring Congo.

Health authorities in Brazzaville struggling to contain the epidemic call those of the DRC to deploy health teams so that they are leading the fight in concert. The two regions are neighbors; the authorities fear that the epidemic could spread to the DRC.

The Director General of Health, Brazzaville, Dr. Alexis Elira Dokecias believe that the DRC should organize campaigns against cholera so that refugees are not subjects of transmission or propagation of this disease in the Region of Likouala.

The prefect of the province of Likouala, Gilbert Mondjo Bomomndjo, told Great Lakes Voice that its jurisdiction has already spent thirty four thousand U.S. dollars to buy the drugs needed to fight against cholera.
