Government has expressed satisfaction with the ongoing cholera vaccination campaign, a secondary intervention to prevent future outbreaks after the disease was put under control.

Director of Epidemiology and Disease Control in the Health and Child Care Ministry, Dr Portia Manangazira, said over 15 percent of the ministry's target has already been vaccinated.

She added that Government officials leading the fight against cholera have shown their support by also getting vaccinated.

Meanwhile Government has intensified enforcement of health safety regulations that will see strict adherence to annual medical examinations for all food handlers and testing of export and import foodstuffs.
