Quentin and other members of the MSF team checked on the facility's supplies, hygiene practices, and the doctors' and nurses' ability to cope with an increased number of cholera patients. 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.
