Honduras Takes Measures to Prevent Cholera

TEGUCIGALPA -  Health authorities announced today that they will take measures to prevent spread to Honduras of a cholera epidemic, which caused more than 1, 100 deaths in Haiti.

Health Minister Arturo Benda told reporters that although it is very unlikely to happen, the authorities remain alert to the possibility of any outbreak of cholera in Honduras.

According to Bendaña, authorities have taken all precautions, especially at airports, to prevent the entry of infected people.

Travelers from Haiti will be kept under strict surveillance, if they develop any symptoms of diarrhea, abdominal pain or dehydration, Bendaña said.

Since mid-October, cholera has infected over 18, 300 people in Haiti.

The epidemic has crossed borders and reached the Dominican Republic and the U.S. state of Florida.
