Ukraine war leaves Mariupol at risk of major cholera outbreak – BBC News

The UK defence ministry has said that the Ukrainian city of Mariupol, which is now under Russian control, is at risk of a major cholera outbreak.

Water in the city has mixed with sewage after weeks of heavy shelling that left infrastructure damaged or destroyed in the city, where an estimated 100,000 people are still living.

One resident who fled Mariupol a week ago described it as a “city of corpses”, with uncollected dead bodies and rubbish adding to the unsanitary conditions.
