Catanduanes cholera death reason for alarm?

Is Catanduanes grappling with a cholera scare? Hopefully not.

It was confirmed during a meeting led by Catanduanes Governor Joseph Cua at the Provincial Health Office on Monday (January 9) that one person has died of cholera in the aftermath of typhoon “Nina” (international name: Nock Ten).

Meanwhile, it was also bared that some 40 other people suffered from acute diarrhea.

A Bicol Standard report said that these were reported between January 1 and 7. It can be recalled that Nina devastated the province on December 25.

In 2012, Catanduanes had a cholera outbreak wherein around 1,400 residents were inflicted.
