Pretoria, May 22 (Prensa Latina) Authorities of the Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality are working to control the cholera outbreak in Hammanskraal, north of Pretoria, where 12 people have lost their lives due to the disease.

Fifty-two water tankers are supplying drinking water to residents of several poor, informal settlements where the outbreak has been detected.

The primary source of the outbreak, whether in natural watercourses or the communities’ water supply systems, has not yet been identified.
