The province of Tete, center of the country, has a higher incidence, with 12 affected districts, followed by Sofala (center) with nine, Niassa (north) with six and Manica (center) with five.
Cabo Delgado, Inhambane, Gaza, and Zambézia have active cholera cases in one district respectively.
Cholera affects Mozambique cyclically, especially during the rainy season, due to poor sanitation and shortage of drinking water.
