HANOI, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) — Vietnam has basically contained an acute diarrhea after it has hit the country for over one month, local newspaper Labor on Tuesday quoted Vietnamese Deputy Health Minister Trinh Quan Huan as saying.

    The number of new infection cases admitted to hospitals sharply decreased last weekend. Only 12 patients, including a cholera one, were admitted to the Tropical Disease Hospital and four to the Bach Mai hospital in capital Hanoi.

    To eliminate the disease, Vietnam has taken drastic measures, including monitoring food safety, ensuring environmental hygiene and intensifying publicity on acute diarrhea, especially in food-hit localities.

    Acute diarrhea has affected over 1,800 people in Vietnam since Oct. 23. Of the patients, 267 have been tested positive to cholera virus, according to the ministry.
