Cholera in Mozambique – level 2

03-04-2019 07:00

Cholera is a disease which causes diarrhoea. If ill people do not get help, it can kill them.

Last Wednesday, five people had cholera in Mozambique. On Friday, 139 people had it. There is a risk that more people will catch it. People can catch this disease from water or food.

The World Health Organisation is trying to help. It sent 900 cholera vaccines and 21 medical teams to Mozambique.

Difficult words: disease (a thing/virus/bacteria which makes you ill), diarrhoea (when you have to poop very often and the poop is like water; this sickness can kill you because you have no water in your body).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
