A cholera outbreak caused by Cyclone Idai in central Mozambique has killed two people and infected more than 1,400, the health ministry has said.

A mass vaccination campaign is expected to start today to curb the spread of the disease.

Aid workers hope to vaccinate some 900,000 people.

Cholera is spread through contaminated food or drinking water and causes acute diarrhoea.
