Typhoid Cases Reported From Christmas Island

Typhoid Cases Reported From Christmas Island

In a much needed move, two asylum seekers from Christmas Island are being kept away from other detainees after they were diagnosed with typhoid. Looking at the severity of the disease, even a flight which was suppose to take them to mainland Australia has been put off.

Confirming the cases, the Immigration Department has claimed that they are trying all in their capacity to make sure that the disease is not being transmitted. However, there would not be any change in the cancellation of any other flight as of now.

The disease could cause fever, headaches, rashes and vomiting. There is need for people there to be made aware about the symptoms so that they can take necessary care of themselves. Putting an end to the fear that the infection might spread, Christmas Island's deputy administrator, Catherine Wildermuth, has assured that there are very bleak chances that the community would be affected anyhow.

The Immigration Department and health authorities are doing all in their capacity that the infection is contained within limits else it could affect others. It has been known that Christmas Island detention facilities are flooded with detainees and this was only after the transfer facilities started that they could get some sort of breather in March last year.
