At least 38 of some 1,800 villagers who have been suffering from severe diarrhea in a remote area in Indonesia’s westernmost Papua province have died in the past two weeks, an official said here on
Wednesday.

“The victims were residents of 10 villages in Borme district of Pegunungan  Bintang regency,” head of the provincial health agency, Tigor Silaban, said.  “We have received the reports from medical personnel stationed at the Borme health clinic. Medicine has also been sent.”

According to Tigor, many of the villagers become ill due to a habit of drinking untreated water directly from the river, which is also used for many other purposes. “The lack of health officials in Borme has also contributed to the significant number of fatalities,” he said.
