When I met Andrew Kazadi, after his 26-year-old nephew died of cholera at a treatment center in Lusaka, Zambia’s capital, he seemed deeply shocked.

Kazadi revealed to us some things that reminded us of the restrictions imposed by governments during the Corona virus pandemic, and he said, “They told us (at the hospital) to look for a coffin, but if we are late, they will bury him this way.”

Now, Zambia is in chaos due to an outbreak of cholera, a bacterial infection caused by contaminated water or food, with more than 15,000 cases and nearly 600 deaths recorded, most of them in the hotspot of Lusaka, since the start of the rainy season in October. /October.

As clouds gathered in the sky in preparation for another heavy rain, Kazadi said, “We have to hurry to get the coffin.”
