Acute diarrhoea spreads across southern provinces

QĐND – Saturday, July 24, 2010, 21:38 (GMT+7)

The acute diarrhoea epidemic is spreading from far and wide in southern provinces, including Cau Mau, An Giang, Ben Tre and Can Tho City, according to the Department of Preventive Health and the Environment.

Nguyen Van Binh, vice director of the department, says that about 70 percent of the contracted cases show minor symptoms or none of any symptoms of the disease.

He said it is difficult to control the number of newly infected cases, as most of them are not hospitalised for clinical examinations.

Binh also warns that vibrio cholarae bacterium can be much detected in ice water, canals and even dog meat.

Acute diarrhoea has shown signs of waning in the northern region with no new cases reported over the past weeks.
