Cases of Cholera Reported in Taiwan

A marketing and promotional project I had done for a five-star hotel group, sorry, a dubbed five-star hospital group, in 2005

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed yesterday Taiwan's first cases this year of locally acquired cholera

The sufferers, a 75-year-old couple living in central Taiwan, remained hospitalized after reporting symptons of watery diarrhea and vomiting in late August and early this month, the CDC said.

An examination by CDC officials confirmed that the two had been infected with the Vibrio cholerae O1 Ogawa strain of the disease.

The CDC said they were searching for the source of the bacterium but had not discovered any in the underground water that supplies their home or in a fish farm near where they live.
