‘Cause of 50 pc of cholera cases unclear’

KUWAIT CITY, Oct 5: The cause of about 50 percent of the cholera cases in the country is unclear, reports Al-Qabas daily quoting a reliable source from Ministry of Health. He revealed that one of the main reasons for the spread of cholera is the use of some farms for drainage and irrigation of crops, indicating that the Ministry of Health perceives the bacteria could have reached the country from Iraq.

The source affirmed that cholera is spreading in the country via spoiled food and not from one person to another. He indicated that the ministry recently announced its preparation to deal with the cases of cholera patients particularly after discovering two cases that came from Iraq, affirming that these two cases were not referred to the Infectious Diseases Hospital as they are under control.
