    […] En marge des thèmes débattus sur ce blog, cette information m’a paru très pertinente. Bien entendu, le choléra sévit en Haïti et il faut se mobiliser mais dans le blog GIDEON on line, il est question du Cholera – Not Just Haiti. […]

    I saw from the above that the Cholera Outbreaks were reported in Jammu and Kashmir, Maharashtra, Assam, Orissa, Tamil Nadu and Gujarat in India. May I know a bit details regarding this outbreak as I am collecting data regarding the cholera from the member states. It is not aiming at publishing or sharing with others. The informaton would be used only for ourselves to look at the trend of some outbreak prone disease.
