Following Social Media re: possible cholera outbreak in Nepal

In recent years, I have developed an addiction for scanning "tweets" on daily basis. My focus is always anything that relates to infectious diseases in Nepal. These days, in particular, there is increased vigilance for possible cholera outbreak in high risk areas. In this respect, I take interest some tweets like as follows by Dr. Sher Bahadur Pun, Medical Officer and Research Officer - Emerging and Re emerging Infectious Diseases at Sukraj Tropical Diseases Hospital, Teku, Nepal. In my opinion, Dr. Pun  is one of the most dedicated doctor in the study of infectious diseases in Nepal. Just few days back, there was a noise re: possible cholera outbreak in Kathmandu valley. Now, as of today, the sample tested have been proven to be culture confirmed cholera. This brings a question to each of us in particular involved in the control and prevention of cholera - what next ?? 

Some of the tweets from Dr. Pun in chronological order.
