On 19 June 2022, Iraq’s health authorities announced a cholera outbreak after at least 13 cases were confirmed across the country and thousands of hospital admissions for acute diarrhea were reported. Ten of the confirmed cases were in the northern city of Sulaymaniyah. Two more cases are confirmed in the southern province of Al Muthanna and the other in Kirkuk, north of Baghdad. There has also been a spike in hospital admissions because of diarrhea in the nearby cities of Erbil and Duhok but to a smaller degree. (IFRC, 6 Jul 2022)
