Cholera alert in Belgaum

The district administration has declared Sambra and surrounding areas in the district as ‘cholera affected.’

The residents have been advised to drink boiled water. Sale of cut fruits, meat, fairs and weekly shandies have been banned.

The deputy commissioner has directed the district health and family welfare officer to constitute a team of doctors in all villages.
