In its latest situation update issued late Tuesday, OCHA said the ongoing cholera outbreak affects Amhara, Oromia, Sidama, the Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples regions (SNNP) and Somali regions of Ethiopia, with recent reports of cholera cases from Afar, Benishangul Gumz and Dire Dawa.
It also stated that the Amhara region remains of the highest concern, with reports of more than 2,700 cases amid insecurity and hostilities impacting efforts to treat the cases and manage the outbreak.
According to OCHA, a recent oral vaccination campaign, which initially targeted 2.06 million people, was concluded in priority districts of Oromia, Sidama, and SNNP regions.
The report also shows the concern over other healthcare challenges in Ethiopia, including measles and malaria.
