||Dealing with gastrointestinal illness on a cruise ship - Part 1: Description of sanitation measures. Part 2: An isolation study
||2004, Vol.55, No.1/4. p.19-29. 6 ref.
||Reports of outbreaks of gastrointestinal illness (GI) during 17 cruises of a ship with an average of 590 passengers and 611 crew per day were reviewed. During a 250-day period, there were 78 reportable GI cases among the passengers and 49 among the crew; a total of 207 people were isolated. Sanitation measures are described, including the isolation of GI cases and their asymptomatic contacts. It was concluded that a detailed operational directive concerning all aspects of sanitation should be made available for the prevention and control of GI outbreaks on ships.
