Speaking at the weekly media briefing on the 'state of cholera', the Director of Prevention - Ministry of Health, Dr Mohamed Dahoma, said that restaurants and the popular Forodhani Public Park in stone town (classified as area A), have been conditionally allowed to open business.
 
"We have been recording a decline in cholera cases down to 99 patients from 199 recorded in previous week and 245 a week before. Cholera has been ending gradually, but we still need to keep observing health precautions," said Dr Dahoma on behalf of the anti-cholera campaign team.
