During January 2020, the risk of AWD/cholera has increased in particular in some flood affected regions including the riverine areas. So far, new AWD cases were reported from Belet weyn, Bulaburde and Jalalaqsi districts of Hiran. Hence, there is a need to scale up of WASH prevention activities to contain the spread of AWD/cholera cases in hotspots of Somalia.
