Cholera Outbreak in Malawi Results in 30 Deaths
A recent cholera outbreak that started last November in Malawi reports 30 killed and 893 ill from the disease. The outbreak is due to the use of contaminated food and water in the 13 districts now affected. Cholera is normally rare in industrialized countries but kills thousands each year in the rest of the world, particularly in Africa. However, it is interesting to note the recent Cholera outbreak in Vancouver Island, where four were infected in what is being called an extremely rare case. The outbreak is believed to be due to the consumption of herring eggs.
