Cholera Up date
It didn't sound hopeful that they would start up the cholera clinic out there anytime soon, it could take a few weeks for that to happen. So we cleared more area in the depot and Steve got a load of meds from CAM yesterday, so we are prepared to treat a huge amount if needed. We are hoping it will not get worse then it is.
We released two patients and had around 4 or 5 come in. Couple of them are quite sick and a few of them are Fish Bowl Patients, (Patients not on bed or intravenous) just drinking oral re hydration stuff (OR) and being observed for a few hours and released. We are seeing more patients that come in with the slightest stomach ache or they felt something not quite right with them, yesterday, we call it fear, so we check them out and make sure they're fine and send them on down the trail again.
