Cuba acknowledges 51 cholera cases

Cuba is acknowledging 51 new cases of cholera in the capital, months after declaring the illness eradicated, the Associated Press reported today.

Cuba says nobody has died from cholera in Havana but AP says the family of at least one man has told it that he died of cholera earlier this month. The government has declined repeated requests for comment, and has not made any experts available to talk about the cholera situation, AP added.
