CARIBBEAN 360 – Guyanese medical experts are visiting three communities in one of the country’s 10 regions to get to the bottom of a gastroenteritis outbreak.

Since December last year, residents in Region 9 have been reporting an increase in the illness, characterized by vomiting and diarrhea, particularly in the communities of Aishalton, Shea Village and Areunar.

Health authorities confirmed that they were 58 reported cases of the infection in the three villages. Children were the main victims.
