Mass vaccination could slow cholera

I read this interesting piece on cholera from the Science News web site and would like readers to have a glimpse of it. It’s titled: Mass vaccination could slow cholera. The article says that vaccinating large number of people against cholera at the first signs of an outbreak could save hundreds or even thousands of lives, a new analysis of past epidemics in Zimbabwe, Zanzibar and India shows. I believe this is cost-effective measure worth adopting.

  1. Just saw this EnH site on your ‘Health tips’ blogroll and curiously said to myself let me make a stop over to see what’s all about. I briefly scanned thru all the postings made and would like to commend your effort on the time spent analysing and advising on health issues. May Allah reward your efforts abundantly. Keep it up.
