The caseload of cholera is rapidly increasing in South Sudan and the deadly, highly contagious disease appears to be spreading. Since the outbreak of cholera in the capital Juba late last week, the reported cholera caseload has doubled every day; now with new reported cases in two additional states, Jonglei and Upper Nile. After the first case was confirmed in Juba four days ago, more than 130 additional cases are now being treated. There are three confirmed deaths. Dozens of children are among the affected. UNICEF
