The Syrian Ministry of Health announced this Sunday the launch of a vaccination campaign in the north of the country to combat the cholera outbreak that has already left a hundred deaths and more than 35,000 suspected cases since the end of August, according to estimates from United Nations.

The campaign will be specifically aimed at the population of the suburbs of Aleppo, Hasaka, Raqqa and Deir Ezzor, and will run until the 15th of this month, the Ministry reported in a statement collected by the official Syrian news agency SANA.
