9 July 2014 -- An estimated 1.5 million South Sudanese are currently internally displaced and there are over 367 260 refugees outside of the South Sudan. About 1.58 million people have been reached with medical interventions since January 2014. The cholera outbreak has spread to new areas and by 8 July there has been 3152 cholera cases, including 70 deaths (CFR 2.3%). The cholera cases in new areas has prompted partners to step up preparedness in high risk areas. Increasing cases of Hepatitis E affecting mostly women in Mingkaman, Awerial County, Lakes State have intensified the need for the declaration of an outbreak.
