Cholera cases in Mount Darwin have risen to 186 while 4 deaths have been recorded.

Mashonaland Central Provincial Administrator and Chairman of the Provincial Civil Protection Unit Mr Cosmos Chiringa said some artisanal miners once admitted, treated and discharged were being reinfected after going back to Mukaradzi to pursue mining activities.

The CPU is now expediting the due process to immediately shut down the area so as to contain the spread of cholera.
