Cholera remains a threat to public health in the Dominican Republic

The spread of cholera from Hait to the Dominican Republic has continued to pose a threat to public health. The provinces with most of the reported cases in September were San Juan, Santo Domingo, and the National District. Dominican Republic health authorities are taking measures to control the spread of the disease.

Travellers in this area should be aware of the risk of exposure to cholera and take all necessary precautions to avoid consuming contaminated food and water, especially if embarking on day excursions outside the confines of major tourist resorts.
