Excerpt
Cholera, Senegal Between 5 and 28 October 2004, the Ministry of Health reported to WHO a total of 128 cases and 2 deaths (case-fatality rate, 1.6%) in Dakar. Vibrio cholerae 01 El Tor was confirmed by the national reference laboratory in Senegal. The number of cases increased sharply since the beginning of the outbreak and a cholera epidemic was declared on 22 October by the Ministry of Health. A national outbreak management committee was established to monitor and carry out comprehensive control measures in response to the outbreak. Physicians and health workers in the affected districts of the city have been alerted and given technical guidance; health education materials on good hygiene have been distributed; social mobilization activities targeted particularly at children and women have been carried out; and unsanitary areas have been decontaminated.
