Health workers race to contain cholera outbreak in northeast Nigeria [no comment]

Health workers in northeast Nigeria are striving to contain a cholera outbreak which has swept through displacement camps, with a drive to vaccinate hundreds of thousands of people against the disease. An estimated 54 people have died from cholera in the region, the United Nations has said but aid workers say there is a problem in containing the outbreak because people do not report cases or seek treatment early.
