2 cholera cases on return from Bangladesh

Near Naples

(ANSA) - Naples, October 3 - A migrant woman and her two-year-old son who have just returned from Bangladesh were registered in Naples as having cholera on Wednesday.
    The mother and son are resident at Sant'Arpino near Caserta, the Cotugno Hospital said.
    "The family contacts have been identified and are now under strict medical observation. The situation is completely under control," said hospital commissioner Antonio Giordano.
    They are believed to be the first cases of cholera in Italy since 2008, while Europe registers dozens of cases of imported cholera a year.
