Glen View and Budiriro are the epicentre of the cholera outbreak that has claimed 49 lives mainly in Harare. Said Dr Manangazira:

We expect vaccination to be effective from seven to 14 days, but what has been happening in Budiriro and Glen View is that even the turn up for vaccination was lower than other suburbs. We hope that residents will take heed of our call to get vaccinated.
