The U.N. World Health Organization (WHO) says the death toll from a cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe now stands at 775.
The WHO released new data today (Wednesday)showing the total number of suspected cases in the southern African country has risen to more than 16-thousand-100.
On Tuesday, the WHO warned that the total number of cholera cases could reach 60-thousand unless the cholera epidemic is stopped.
Zimbabwe's health minister recently appealed for international help to fight the water-borne disease. But on Tuesday, the country's information minister (Sikhanyiso Ndlovu)insisted the cholera situation is under control.
The epidemic has worsened a humanitarian crisis in Zimbabwe that has spurred several heads of government to call on President Robert Mugabe to resign.
