Cholera spreads to river system of South Africa's Kruger Park
There is no sign the cholera outbreak in Zimbabwe, which claimed over 3000 lives in the troubled country, is under control - especially now the disease has been detected in the rivers flowing through the Kruger National Park - South Africa' s famous wildlife reserve.
However, the developments do not pose a threat to people visiting the reserve - which is situated in the North-East of South Africa.
Cholera has been detected in the rivers flowing through the Kruger National Park, according to the South African National Parks (SANParks).
"We need to manage and protect the rivers, but no person in the park drinks directly from the rivers. We have our own purification plants, so people will not be affected," SANParks chief executive David Mabunda in a press statement.
The Kruger Park is situated in both the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces. Over the past months, 3000 people in this area - which borders Zimbabwe - have been treated for cholera.
