**Malawi’s worst cholera epidemic in decades has sparked massive demand for vaccines but stocks are reportedly running low.

According to local media, citing the spokesperson for the Malawi’s health ministry – Adrian Chikumbe -, the country has no more cholera vaccines.

Malawi secured a tranche of 2.9 million doses from the Gavi-supported Global Oral Cholera Vaccine Stockpile in November.

The country’s 29 health districts reported cholera cases since the confirmation of the first case in March 2022.

As of January 20, Malawi’s health authorities reported a total of 631 new cases of cholera; 17 new deaths.

The cumulative confirmed cases and deaths reported since the onset of the outbreak stood at 28,132 and 916 respectively.

In its daily update, the health ministry urged all Malawians to adhere to preventive and containment measures.
