So far at least 73 385 Zimbabweans have been infected with water-borne diarrhea disease since August and 3 524 have died, in Africa's deadliest cholera outbreak in 15 years.

On Friday the World Health Organization said that the Cholera epidemic seems to be spreading across Southern Africa and with the rainy season the number of cases is only likely to increase, Reuters reported.

WHO spokesperson Fadela Chaib said that the countries sharing borders with Zimbabwe have all reported cholera infections that could be related to the country's ongoing epidemic.

There is believed to be a link between the Zimbabwe outbreak and South Africa, and possibly with Mozambique, Botswana and Zambia, she told a news briefing in Geneva, where the United Nations agency is based.

Movements of population are likely the source of infection and spread.

The wet season stands to propel cholera-contaminated water in Zimbabwe's rivers and wells, and floods may keep aid workers from distributing needed water purification tablets, rehydration salts, and soap in rural areas, according to the WHO spokesperson, Reuters reported.

According to the spokesperson, Cholera is not yet under control, far from it.

In normal conditions, cholera is preventable and treatable.
