  • Description

    A large-scale medical operation of anti-cholera vaccinations has been put into motion by the Government health Authorities in Tunisia. This follows the recent report of cases in the two towns of Kelibia and Goulette.

    Although the vaccinations programme is voluntary, all citizens are being urged to take advantage of the protection against the disease.

    In Tunis large numbers of people, often entire families, line-up daily at hospitals and medical centres to receive their injection.

    While there have been no reports of cholera in Tunis, itself, the Government has taken the precautionary measure of reserving a number of beds in the Earnest Conseil Hospital - the only medical centre capable of dealing with the disease in the capital.

    Director of Preventive Medicine, Dr. Ben Salem, has asked all Tunisians to take special Hygiene precautions. He gave the assurance that there was no fear of an epidemic and any rumours to that effect should be discounted.
