Symptoms/Treatment/Prevention – English

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM CONTAMINATION

  • Wash your hands with soap before and after taking care of the patient
  • Cut your nails

ISOLATE CHOLERA PATIENTS

  • Stools, vomit and soiled clothes of patients are highly contagious
  • Latrines and patients’ buckets need to be washed and disinfected with chlorine
  • Cholera patients have to be in a special ward, isolated from other patients
  • CONTINUOUS PROVISION OF NUTRITIOUS FOOD is important for all patients, especially for those with shigella dysentery
  • Provide frequent small meals with familiar foods during the first two days rather than infrequent large meals
  • Provide food as soon as the patient is able to take it
  • Breastfeeding of infants and young children should continue
