Local areas did the same and worked with the government
Also governments trained and educated its people
Community reaction was to be sanitized and be educated

Remember to practice good habits in foreign countries
Wash your hands before handling, eating, or cooking food
Wash your hands after you go to the bathroom
Wash your hands after touching an infected person
Vaccines are being developed using many methods
A few of these are typhoid vaccines, zinc, enema, and shigella vaccines Prevention Despcription Dysentery is a viral, bacterial, or parasitic disease
The most common pathogen though is Shigella bacteria
Some symptoms include: diarrhea, stomach pains, delirium
We believe that this disease is a pandemic
This is because it has appeared in all continents in large numbers

The death rate is 15% of people who contract it Bibliography “Dysentery.” Phage International. PhageInternational, 3 Feb. 2003. Web. 30 Oct. 2012. <http://www.phageinternational.com/phagetherapy/diseases/dysentery.htm>.
