Diarrhoea outbreak in Nimba

Results of laboratory tests are expected early next week to try to determine the cause of a bloody diarrhoea outbreak in Nimba county, a WHO official in Abidjan told IRIN yesterday. A team travelled to Nimba this week to investigate the outbreak and collect samples after local authorities reported a recent increase in the number of cases in the area, the official added. Liberia’s Star Radio on Wednesday said at least 39 people in the county had died of the disease since June.
