risk assessment

This rapid risk assessment assesses the potential risk for European travellers to Cuba after an outbreak of cholera in the Granma Province of the country. As of 12 July 2012, 85 cases of Vibrio cholera were confirmed by the Cuban Ministry of Health. ECDC concludes that should the outbreak stay contained within the Granma Province, the risk to European travellers remains low, yet if the outbreak spreads beyond this region, the risk should be reassessed.
