Cuban cholera outbreak in Havana appears to be contained (update)

By actively searching for possible cases of cholera and employing prevention measures, health authorities appear to have contained the outbreak of cholera in Havana. Nevertheless, until no new cases are found, travellers can reduce the risk of exposure to cholera by strictly observing all food and water precautions. If visiting this area and if gastrointestinal symptoms develop, e.g., vomiting and watery diarrhoea, travellers should seek medical care at once.
