Cholera outbreak

ASL Airlines F-GZTA flight caused a fear of cholera outbreak and 147 people evacuation after the medical experts surrounded the place coming from Algeria. The reason for the alert was that one of the passengers suffered from cholera.

The passenger turned out to be an 8-year-old French child that was transported to the hospital immediately while the passengers were held on board.

Airport spokesman Denis Leluc said: “There was a fear for the health of the child, who was evacuated to the city hospital for examination.

“There were 147 other passengers, as well as crew, and all of them were warned about the dangers of Cholera. The eight-year-old child is still undergoing tests.”

Cholera is rare in Europe and France, in particular, but it might spread with the help of Africa and South East Asia tourists.

What’s cholera and what are the symptoms?

Cholera is an infectious disease that can be transferred by contact with infected fecal matter, food or water. Unfortunately, the disease is life-threatening as cholera can kill within moments if the symptoms are left ignored.

Symptoms include vomiting, muscle cramps, severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It actually leaves up to 130,000 people dead annually, with a 5 million infected.
