  • Description

    AN OUTBREAK OF CHOLERA HAS STRUCK BRUNEI, THE BRITISH - PROTECTED SULTANATE, NORTH-WEST OF MALAYSIAN SARAWAK.

    SINCE THE OUTBREAK OF THE DISEASE IN THE OIL-RICH SULTANATE LAST WEEK, TWO PEOPLE HAVE DIED AND TWELVE OTHERS HAVE BEEN ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL.

    THE OUTBREAK IS CENTRED IN THE KAMPONG (WATERS VILLAGE) AREA OF BRUNEI.

    THE DANGER HERE IS ESPECIALLY GREAT BECAUSE NEARLY ALL HOMES STAND AT THE WATER'S EDGE.

    MODERN SANITATION IS NON-EXISTENT AND CONTAMINATED WATER IS USED BY THE VILLAGERS FOR EVERYDAY PURPOSES.

    A MASS VACCINATION PROGRAMME IS ALREADY UNDER WAY, WITH MEDICAL TEAMS VISITING REMOTE VILLAGES.

    BRITISH TROOPS STATIONED IN BRUNEI ARE HELPING IN THE CAMPAIGN TO CONTROL THE OUTBREAK.
