"The number of deaths has gone up to 50 but the situation is under control," Evelia Marole, a government doctor in Guru, a district in Manica, told AFP.

"More than 100 others are in hospital due to the disease. We have isolated the district...nobody can go in or out of it until the cholera is controlled," she said.
