Threat of Epidemics

Doctors and aid agency experts from France and Jordan said Baghdad residents could face disease from POOR SANITATION AND DIRTY WATER in the aftermath of bombing raids on the Iraqi capital. Intestinal epidemics like TYPHOID or CHOLERA could occur among Baghdad’s 4.5-million population, they said. Many residents fled to provincial areas before the war, and others stocked up on food and bottled water. Government officials and medical experts say they have no evidence so far of epidemic.
