Galli: “I don’t expect cholera epidemic, more typhus risk”

-

On the WHO’s alarm about the risk of cholera outbreaks in Mariupol in Ukraine, “I think that typhus is the first choice of a possible disease. Cholera hardly manifests itself in such a temperate or cold area, let’s say that someone has to bring it to us. In Yemen there was a problem with the war, since they had destroyed the water systems. So I imagine more the risk for other diseases transmissible via the fecal-oral route, such as hepatitis A or typhus. Ukraine there was more talk of polio, given the low vaccinations. In my opinion, a signal has come from the World Health Organization to be careful, but I do not expect a cholera epidemic so easily “. Massimo Galli, former director of the infectious diseases department of the Sacco hospital in Milan, underlines this to Adnkronos Health.
