A fisherman guts fish on the ground at Bunfi Port in Conakry, Guinea, Aug. 18, 2012. Fishermen and vendors can touch fish contaminated with cholera and ingest it or spread it to others. Médecins Sans Frontières is responding to a cholera outbreak in Guinea, which is affecting coastal areas and inland. Two emergency MSF cholera treatment centers in Conakry are receiving around 60 new cases per day, and a third treatment center opened over the weekend.
