The city of Philadelphia is taking steps to prevent a major outbreak of cholera in the city, a major concern that has left more than 1,000 people dead and more than 3,000 homeless.
The Philadelphia City Council approved an ordinance that requires all businesses in the area to use chlorine-based detergents to kill the bacteria, as well as other products.
The new measures are part of the city’s broader efforts to combat the spread of cholorosis, a bacteria that can be transmitted through contaminated water.
“We’re taking a lot of steps to get this under control,” Councilwoman Stephanie Singer, a member of the council, told reporters Wednesday.
“The city has made some really good progress.
We’re going to continue that.”
Chlorine is a powerful disinfectant, but it doesn’t kill bacteria as effectively as chlorine, which kills them.
For this reason, some residents have complained that it has been a major problem for the city.
Many of the choleros in Philadelphia are infected with the disease, and the city has responded by restricting drinking water and limiting the number of people who can come into contact with the bacteria.
A recent study found that nearly 70 percent of residents with cholero infections did not use chlorine at all in their homes.
The council approved a similar measure last week to increase the use of natural disinfecting wipes, and it has set a goal to eliminate 50 percent of the bacteria in the water supply by 2020.
That’s an ambitious goal, but Singer said it’s a step in the right direction.
“This is a very significant step forward for the community,” she said.
“It’s going to allow us to get a lot better results in terms of our disinfection efforts.”
The new measure also requires companies to install a barrier to prevent the spread and spread of the disease in the vicinity of water treatment plants.
Some people have been skeptical about the measure, saying it would take a lot more effort than simply installing a barrier, but the council approved it anyway.
The city has a long history of making progress on cholerosis, and many of its efforts to tackle the problem were made possible thanks to the city having an excellent water supply.
The City Council has been working with the Department of Environmental Protection to address the citywide cholers outbreak, and in recent months, the city announced a major new effort to help fight the spread.
The agency, which also includes the city police, has been helping the city get its water back in proper condition.
The department has also helped install water filtration systems to prevent waterborne disease.
The system was installed in the neighborhoods of Kensington and Springdale in Philadelphia, and other neighborhoods have been ordered to install similar filtrates.
The goal of the new effort is to reduce the number and spread rate of the Cholera Outbreak in the City of Philadelphia, said Dr. Michael McVey, who heads up the Philadelphia Department of Public Health.
He said the department plans to put more than $500,000 into the effort.
The program is expected to cost $20 million, but some of the money is already being spent.
“As we continue to fight this outbreak, we will use every resource to help our city remain safe,” McVee said.
He stressed that the city is not making any promises.
The plan also includes additional resources to support the city in dealing with other diseases, including coronavirus.
He also said the city was in talks with other cities to offer help with their efforts to prevent choleria, which is caused by a different bacteria, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
