The statement said, "Health Minister Adela Hmoud is holding consultations with the regional office of the World Health Organization (WHO) to enhance cooperation in responding to the outbreak. In September when the outbreak was first reported that the cases of cholera were partly the result of poor water quality caused by the low level of the Euphrates."
