HAVANA, July 14 (Xinhua) -- Cuba on Saturday said 158 cases of cholera have been confirmed since an outbreak of the disease was first reported earlier this month.

The Healthy Ministry almost two weeks ago reported a cholera outbreak in Manzanillo with 50 confirmed infections and three deaths.

The ministry said in a release Saturday that local media has been working to keep the public informed about the situation and that it has been engaged in concrete measures to avoid a spread of the disease.

Cuban medical records indicate the last cholera outbreak occurred almost 130 years ago in August 1882.
