      Cholera: rise of suspected cases in Boufarik and Algiers

      HuffPost Algeria

      The number of suspected cholera cases rose to 127 at Boufarik Hospital in Blida and 9 at El Kettar Hospital in Algiers, according to the respective directors of both institutions in a statement to the private television channel Ennahar TV.

      The director of this hospital Reda Derbouche said Saturday morning that the number of suspected cases of cholera has increased to 127 cases. It was 117 this morning, including 57 women, 28 men and 32 children, according to the same source.

      He said 29 people left the hospital in Boufarik, where a lady named F.M, died Friday night from this disease.

      The same official said the woman was suffering from acute diarrhea and other chronic diseases when she was admitted to the hospital.

      At El Kettar hospital in Algiers, the number of suspected cases is 9 according to its director Bouyoucef Issam-Eddine. He said samples were transferred to the Pasteur Institute to confirm cholera cases.

      He said that his services were still unaware of the origins of this epidemic.

      On Thursday, the Ministry of Health announced 41 confirmed cases of cholera among 88 suspects in Algiers, Bouira, Blida and Tipaza. One death had been registered.

      The number of suspected and confirmed cases has continued to increase in Blida and Algiers, according to the directors of hospitals, while dozens more cases were leaving the hospital. However, the Ministry of Health said Friday that the 41 cases of cholera recorded in four wilayas of the country were cases "isolated and limited to families".

      The director of the Pasteur Institute, Zoubir Harrat, said at a press conference that he suspected a food origin, including fruits and vegetables transported dirty hands without confirming this origin, which is still the subject of investigation.

      He excluded contamination related to water consumption. These statements were confirmed by the Ministries of Health and Water Resources. In vain, Algerians are still wary of tap water, taking assault groceries to get supplies of mineral water.

      They even suspect the Ministry of Health of wanting to hide the information, since the press reported that officials have had confirmation of cholera cases since at least Monday, August 20.

      Cholera: a source of water at the origin of the epidemic in Tipaza

      HuffPost Algeria

      A source of water from the locality of Sidi Lekbir, Ahmar El Ain commune is at the origin of 19 cases of cholera from the wilaya of Tipaza, announced Djamel Fourar, director of prevention at the Ministry of Health.

      Asked by the private television channel, Ennahar TV, Dr. Djamel Fourar said that the number of suspected cases of cholera is 139, including 6 cases in Bouira since Thursday, 90 in Blida, 22 in Algiers, 19 in Tipaza, 1 to Medea and another to Ain Defla.

      The same official at the Ministry of Health said that the water source of Sidi Lekbir is at the origin of this epidemic in the wilaya of Tipaza. "A family drinking from this source has been affected by the disease," he said.

      Mr Fourar reassured that this source "has been condemned because its water is not drinkable and can cause other cases of cholera".

      It is, according to his precisions, a natural source, untapped by any society but whose water is consumed by the inhabitants of the locality. "The conditions of cleanliness are however not respected and the water has never been treated," he said.

      Regarding the other wilayas, he explained that the investigation is ongoing and that several water sources are being inspected.

        Cholera: the problem of traceability of food consumed by Algerians

        By: Sonia Lyes August 25, 2018 at 13:48

        The cholera epidemic continues to spread in Algeria, with the announcement of a second confirmed death at Boufarik hospital. 139 suspected cases of cholera have been reported since Thursday in several wilayas including 90 in Blida, 22 in Algiers, 19 in Tipaza, 6 cases in Bouira, one in Medea and another in Ain Defla.

        Meanwhile, the authorities are fumbling to pinpoint the origin of the epidemic. The Health Ministry announced on Saturday that the cholera cases in the wilaya of Tipaza were due to a source of contaminated water located in Sidi Lekbir. Although the origin of the disease in other wilayas is currently unknown or at least not announced, the authorities are studying the trail of contaminated fruits and vegetables.

        If the origin of the epidemic comes from fruits and vegetables, the real difficulty for the authorities will be to pinpoint the foods contaminated by cholera. The agricultural sector and more specifically the sale of fruit and vegetables is in fact gangrenous by the informal, making the traceability of food very complicated.

        If the Ministry of Health manages to identify the fruit or vegetable that affected the different patients, the difficulty will be to find the common seller (s) and the origin of the food in question. Most fruit and vegetable sellers, especially street vendors, have no legal existence and are therefore likely to disappear without trace.

        Just as these sellers do not care much about the origin of the food put on sale, privileging the fast and informal gain. For the authorities, the task could therefore potentially be very difficult.

        While the cholera epidemic reveals the many shortcomings in the health control system of the Algerian authorities, cholera also puts the spotlight on the situation of total uncertainty that exists in the crucial sector represented by agriculture. The cholera represents a serious warning so that the authorities give all the attention and the seriousness to the concern of traceability of the food that the citizens consume.

        The problem of traceability could take on a whole new dimension if a disease were to affect the meat or the fish, where only the word of the seller is authentic on the origin of the food. The authorities must therefore take matters into their own hands.

          Cholera: an "uncontrolled" epidemic by an "incapable ministry" and a "silent government"

          By Mehdi Alioui

          The epidemic of cholera in several wilayas of the country, confirmed Thursday by the Ministry of Health, is the subject of "poor management" with "little responsiveness" according to Mohamed Bekkat Berkani, president of the National Council of the Order Algerian doctors.

          In a statement to HuffPost Algeria, he said that the Ministry of Health and the Institut Pasteur were "unable" to control this epidemic and identify its origin, a role that must be performed by an agency for health monitoring, control and prevention.
          ...
          "We (Council of the Order of Algerian doctors, Ed) have proposed, it's been years now, to create a health monitoring agency to monitor any suspicion of epidemic spread," he said. "This agency would be able to establish cause-and-effect relationships and make urgent decisions in the face of an epidemic," he says.

          Without the creation of this body so much demanded by the Council of the Order of Doctors, its president felt that the ministry could not be reactive. "This epidemic began in Ain Bessam in the wilaya of Bouira but they have obviously underestimated the results. Later, there were other cases in Boufarik, "he recalls. "It took a long time, very long to confirm the cases of cholera".

          Hundreds of people, showing symptoms similar to those of cholera, were hospitalized several days before Eid-El Adha. Newspapers even reported that officials had confirmed cholera cases since at least Monday, August 20.

            Cholera: 56 confirmed cases out of 161 cases hospitalized since August 07, 2018

            APS AUGUST 27, 2018 AT 17:41 MIN 4

            The Ministry of Health, Population and Hospital Reform said that as of August 26, 56 cases of cholera have been confirmed on the 161 cases hospitalized since August 7, said Monday a statement from the Ministry .

            The distribution of cases by wilaya is as follows: Bouira 03 confirmed cases out of 06 suspected cases, Blida 30 confirmed cases out of 106 suspected cases, Tipasa 12 confirmed cases out of 19 suspected cases, Algiers 10 confirmed cases out of 27 suspected cases, Medea 1 case confirmed and finally Ain Defla 02 suspected cases, the statement said.

            The number of hospitalized "has significantly decreased" from 33 cases on August 23 to 04 cases on August 26, 2018, said the ministry, noting that no new deaths were reported outside the two deaths registered at the wilaya of Blida.

            The ministry says, in this sense, that all patients are treated at the EHS El Kettar and EPH Boufarik, and that 45 cases were put out, ensuring that cases remaining hospitalized "evolved favorably" . Even though the number of hospitalized cases has decreased, given the incubation period of up to a week, the surveillance system is maintained at all levels, says the ministry.

            In this regard, the Ministry of Health reiterated the main measures to stop and contain the spread of the disease namely the careful washing of hands with soap and clean water several times a day, especially before contact with a food, before each meal and after using the toilet, washing vegetables and fruits before consumption and boiling and bleaching the storage water before use.

            It is also recommended not to stock up on untreated and uncontrolled water points such as springs and wells. The same source recalls that in case of diarrhea and vomiting, it is imperative to present in a health facility closest to rehydrate by taking enough water and oral rehydration salts (ORS) and to pay special attention to children and elderly people.

                Cholera: the origin of the epidemic remains unknown

                Society By: Hassane Saadoun August 28, 2018 at 21:28

                The cholera outbreak affects until Tuesday, August 28 59 confirmed cases among 172 patients suspected and hospitalized, according to an official report of the Ministry of Health.

                No new deaths "were reported outside the two deaths that were recorded at the level of the wilaya of Blida," said the ministry, while there were reports of the death in Blida of a woman suspected of have been affected by cholera.

                News releases issued so far by the Ministry of Health detail the geographical distribution of patients but never address issues related to the epidemiological investigation and even less the origin of the spread of the disease.

                Thus, according to the communiqué of Tuesday, we know that 30 confirmed cases were recorded in Blida, 3 in Bouira, 14 in Tipaza, 11 in Algiers and 1 in Medea. The press release, which is not very precise like the previous ones, does not give the dates at which the contamination of each patient was found. It is therefore impossible to say for sure where the epidemic comes from and it is likely that even the Ministry of Health does not know.

                Bouira probable origin of the epidemic

                Chronologically, the first outbreak of the epidemic is probably that of Bouira, where three cases were recognized by the Ministry of Health. The three patients whose contamination was attested between August 7th and 14th all belong to the same family.

                "We have cases in Blida that are from the same family that was reached in Bouira and when they visited them, they brought back the disease with them in the wilaya of Blida," said Saturday, August 25, Djamel Fourar, Director General for Communicable Disease Prevention and Control at the Ministry of Health.

                This information, added to the fact that the home of Ain Bessem preceded those of Blida, Tipaza, Médéa and Algiers, allows us to deduce that the origin of the contamination is well in the region of Ain Bessem and more precisely in the communes of Raouraoua and Bir Ghbalou from which originate the first three cases.

                This hypothesis is reinforced by the information given by Youcef Terfani, deputy director of prevention at the Ministry of Health, quoted by the APS that there were two people suspected of being infected with cholera and belonging to the the same contaminated family in Ain Bessem. These two patients were infected following a visit they made to their relatives in Ain Bessem, according to Tefrani. This information is indicative of a Bouira origin of the epidemic, even if other origins remain possible.

                The source of Sidi Lekbir, a false track?

                The source of Sidi Lekbir, located in Ahmer El Ain in the wilaya of Tipaza was declared contaminated by the cholera vibrio by Mr. Fourar who announced its closure and the ban on the consumption of its water.

                Health Minister Mokhtar Hasbellaoui said at a press conference he gave on Sunday, August 26, that "the epidemiological survey, initiated by the health authorities following the declaration of cholera in four wilayas of the country has led to the identification of the outbreak of the disease ". This home is, according to him, the source of Sidi Lekbir.

                This desire to decree the natural source of Sidi Lekbir as the original focus of the epidemic is farfetched and does not fit with the other available data, including the chronology of the spread of contagion and in which the home of Ain Bessem undeniably remains the first even though it has officially been extinguished since August 14, when the latest contamination was found by the Ministry of Health.

                The protests of the residents of Ahmer El Ain who denounced the announcement of the contamination of their source as a "lie", and the absence of new cases of cholera in Ahmer El Ain while the time of incubation of the disease has been exceeded since several residents of this locality have drunk large amounts of water from this supposedly contaminated source, suggest that the Ministry of Health embarked on a false trail in the search for the origin of the spread of cholera.

                  The same department recalls that all patients are supported at the EHS El-Kettar and EPH Boufarik. "85 patients were put outgoing and the cases still hospitalized evolve favorably," the statement said.

                  The Hasbellaoui Department also claims that all preventive measures are being taken to curb this phenomenon. It recalls that the careful washing of hands with soap and clean water repeated very often during the day, especially before contact with a food, before each meal and after using the toilet, washing vegetables and fruits before their Consumption, boiling and bleaching of storage water before its use remain the main preventive measures.

                    Cholera: The Pasteur Institute contradicts the Ministry of Agriculture concerning fruits and vegetables

                    Real-Time News By: Hassane Saadoun August 30, 2018 at 21:59

                    The Pasteur Institute of Algiers (IPA) suspects the contamination of fruits and vegetables that have been irrigated with polluted water to be involved in the spread of cholera, according to a statement issued by the Institute this Thursday evening.

                    "The contamination of fruit (watermelon, unwashed melon) or vegetables that can be eaten raw (carrot, cucumber, salad, tomato, beet), irrigated by faecally polluted water is also suspected," reads the report. IPA newsletter.

                    In making this announcement, the Institute contradicts the Ministry of Agriculture which assured Monday, August 27th, that "the waters intended for the irrigation of fruits and vegetables are healthy and can under no circumstances be at the origin of the spread of the Cholera epidemic ", according to the APS.

                    "The ministry reassures citizens about the quality of fruits and vegetables produced in Algeria, which are unscathed. The irrigation water absorbed by the plants does not represent a danger for agricultural production, "the ministry said in a statement relayed by the official agency which also quoted a" communication manager "of the Ministry of Agriculture. Agriculture which affirmed that "no case (of irrigation by polluted water) was detected recently".

                    The assertion of the Ministry of Agriculture that "innocent" fruits and vegetables produced in Algeria dates back to Monday, August 27, when the official version still wanted to make the water source of Sidi Lekbir the point of origin of the spread of cholera in the country. A version denied by the facts as well as by the Director of Health Tipaza who dismissed Thursday, any link between the source of Ahmer el Ain and cases of attack by cholera.

                    This contradiction between two institutions of the country is added to the long list of other contradictory, fanciful and erroneous statements made by different health and ministerial authorities who seem to get tangled up in the management of this cholera epidemic, the beginning of which is beginning, according to the Ministry of Health, August 7.

                    Cholera information

                    Update from the 29/08/2018

                    Since 07 August 2018, we are witnessing in some isolated localities in the wilaya of Bouira (Haouch Mrabhia, Raouraoua), Blida (Khazrouna District, and Berayane), Tipaza (Hamr El Ain) to the appearance of cases of acute gastroenteritis with Choleriform profuse diarrhea occurring in persons living in the same family. The identification of the causative organism revealed the presence of Vibrio cholerae O1 Ogawa Serotype in 59 stool samples from patients admitted to the infectious diseases departments of Boufarik and El Kettar hospital on 27 August 2018 on a total of 172 suspected cases. A natural source called "source of Sidi el Kebir", located not far from Hamr Al Ain commune in the wilaya of Tipaza was found contaminated by the cholera vibrio,

                    So far, 2 deaths have been recorded.

                    Distribution of cholera cases from 07 to 24 August (source: IPA)

                    In addition, the analysis of water samples from 21 water points, including 03 fountains owned by individuals in Bougara, Blida wilaya, showed that 10 of them are unfit for consumption.

                    It should be pointed out that the drinking water supplied by the controlled pipelines (AEP) of the Algerian waters is of good bacteriological quality and therefore not incriminated in this epidemic of cholera.

                    Contamination of fruit (watermelon, unwashed melon) or vegetables that can be eaten raw (carrot, cucumber, salad, tomato, beet), irrigated by fecally polluted water is also suspected.

                        The cholera epidemic, which has killed two people in Algeria since its appearance on August 7, is "under control," health minister Mokhtar Hasbellaoui said Tuesday. Political and health authorities continue to be criticized for managing the epidemic.

                        "The situation (...) is under control", but the preventive mechanism will be maintained "until the real causes of this health emergency are understood", and "until no more suspect cases", said the minister, quoted by the state agency APS, Tuesday, September 4.

                        He did not specify how many "suspected cases" remained hospitalized. These are mainly patients with symptoms of the disease: acute diarrhea and vomiting.

                        Sunday, according to a final official report, only ten "patients" of cholera were still hospitalized on the 74 confirmed cases since the beginning of the epidemic, the first in Algeria since 1996. The authorities had not announced any new case since August 29th.

                          A quarantine device was set up around a service of the psychiatric hospital of Sid Chahmi, near Oran this Wednesday, September 5, following the visit of the Wali of Oran and the director of public health . Four cholera patients are being treated in this service, according to a reliable source collected by HuffPost Algeria.

                          "A first case was suspected a few days ago, but the medical staff was summoned not to let this information leak under pain of punishment," the source said.

                          The director of health and population of the wilaya, Abdelnasser Boudaa, denied last Wednesday a news flash broadcast on a private television channel reporting "the existence of three suspected cases of cholera" in Oran.
