Amoebiasis In Saskatchewan


Amoebiasis has been found to be endemic in northwestern Saskatchewan. The carrier rate among the Treat Indians in the area is probably of the order of 50% or higher. Mass treatment has already been brought to 700 persons. Further surveys are planned to define the total extent of the problem.
