Civil Government Guidelines for Avoiding Dysentery

The most important events that happened in the province on a day like today

(1) According to what I was informed by Dr. Jesus Gimenez, health delegate in the province of Ourense, I announce the following prophylactic measures against dysentery.

Any patient with diarrhea whose stool contains blood should call a doctor immediately. In case of dysentery, the following measures should be taken:

Keep toilets, cesspools, and manure scrupulously clean by drenching them with a four percent solution of cresyl, do not pour feces on the manure, but collect it in closed containers and wait twelve hours before flushing it down the toilet. If there is no toilet, bury them away from the house and cover it with quicklime in wells.

Boil or burn the clothes that were in contact with the patient; that there are dishes and it is disinfected by boiling separately from the others after each meal.

Wash the bed with cresyl solution and protect the entrance to the room with a curtain soaked in this substance.

Keep the food protected from flies, which must be chased by all means, for example with sugar water formada, sandpaper, etc.

Cooks, bakers, butchers and waiters in the dining room and those in contact with sick people should wash their hands after going to the toilet and before touching food.

Water and milk should be consumed after ten minutes of boiling, while consumption of raw legumes is not recommended.

Doctors should report suspected cases to health authorities. In the town hall, there will be available to the residents chlorinated lime, copper sulfate and sublimated.
