Pre­lim­i­nary tests con­ducted yesterday on a 79-year-old Dutch tourist who dis­played symp­toms sim­i­lar to cholera came out neg­a­tive, of­fi­cials at Athens’s Hygeia Hos­pi­tal con­firmed. The Dutch­man was on hol­i­day on the eastern Aegean is­land of Kos when he dis­played signs of acute gas­troen­teri­tis, which are sim­i­lar to those of the deadly and highly con­ta­gious dis­ease. A team from the Cen­ter for Dis­ease Preven­tion and Con­trol was dis­patched to Kos amid fears that if he were suf­fer­ing from cholera, oth­ers on the is­land may also be sick.
