Iranian Ambassador to Zimbabwe Mr Ahmad Erfanian joined the Government to fight the cholera outbreak, yesterday at the Islamic Republic of Iran in Harare where he donated commodities worth $30 000.

The commodities include gumboots, dustcoats, gloves, antibacterial liquid hand wash, disinfectant liquid, knapsack sprayer, hygiene cotton wool and mutton cloth for purposes of cleaning treatment centres.

 

 

In his acceptance speech, Health and Child Care Minister Dr Obadiah Moyo said government appreciated the Iranian donation revealing that cholera deaths remained at 49.

“As a country we must not record any cholera death, no one should die because of cholera.”

“We are building bridges; we trust this relationship will go a long way. If it wasn’t for you countries that have come on board, we as Government could have taken longer to eradicate this outbreak.” He said.

“We thank all our partners who are assisting us in this fight and we continue urging citizens   to practice good hygienic practices” said Dr Moyo.

Mr Erfanian said Iran has been an all-weather friend to Zimbabwe.

“It is worth mentioning that the two countries enjoy cordial relations dating back to the time of the liberation struggle.

We hope that the fight against cholera will soon be won as the country has recorded a reduction in new cholera cases” said Dr Moyo.

To date 10 783 cumulative suspected cholera cases have passed through the treatment centres with the majority of these cases being reported from Glenview 5 518, Budiriro 2 833and from Beatrice Infectious Disease hospital 2 432.
