Cholera quarantine lifted

[TamilNet, Thursday, 29 October 1998, 20:27 GMT]
The Sri Lankan Army check post at Uylankulam that has been closed to civilian traffic for nearly 3 weeks was opened again Saturday 24 October. The army road block at Uylankulam was closed as a result of the out break of Cholera in Vidaththalthivu, Pallamadu and in Skandapuram areas in the Vanni.

This measure was taken as a precautionary action on the advice of the medical officials of Mannar district.

Official reports of the medical department in the Vanni area revealed that 11 people had died of Cholera. Over 270 suspected patients of cholera had been treated at Vidaththalthivu, Madhu and Akkarayankulam government hospitals.

Meanwhile medical sources in Mannar said 5 people suspected to be cholera patients were admitted to Vidaththalthivu hospital on October 27th.

A ten year old girl died of cholera at Iluppaikadavai on the same day, they added.

Health officials in Mannar have reacted immediately with counter measures to prevent the deadly disease.
