100,000 People Vaccinated In Hanoi Against Cholera

Fearing the cholera epidemic that has broken out this month in some parts of Ha Tinh Province could spread to Ha Noi, the Department of Health (DoH) has vaccinated residents in the capital.

The DoH said it has dispatched around 100,000 doses to Thach That and Thuong Tin Districts.
Dr. Nguyen Huy Nga, head of the central Department of Preventative Health and Environment, said Ha Tinh has done well in controlling the epidemic. 

Quynh Luu District is suspected to be the original source of the epidemic since one of its communes, Thach Kim, is thickly population but has no private toilets.
