Cholera Outbreak in South China Spreads to University, Seven Students Infected

Posted by Author on November 7, 2008


Epoch Times Staff,  Nov 4, 2008-

A cholera outbreak recently spread to Haikou, the capital of China’s Hainan Province, forcing the quarantine of Hainan University.

Most dining halls are closed in Hainan University.

Seven students have been confirmed with having the disease, bringing the total confirmed cases in the province to 51, according to a local medical official on Sunday.

More than 70 other students were in the hospital with stomach ailments. The university had barred outside personnel from entering the campus and prevented students from leaving, Xinhua News Agency reported.

The outbreak has left Chinese internet users and students at the university questioning the response time of school authorities who did little to react after cases first sprung up in the school on Oct. 30. Students are now also complaining of being restricted to campus grounds, “We don’t even know the situation until our parents called after watching the news!”

Three of the five campus dining halls are closed, making life increasingly difficult for students. Some students believe that the outbreak of the disease was due to bad hygienic conditions in the dining hall. “We see rats and flies all over the place,” reported one student.

Frustration is developing rapidly among Hainan students, and some suggest that the university president should resign from his post.
