This message is to inform U.S. citizens residing in or visiting Cuba that media reports have indicated that cases of cholera have been identified in the city of Havana, possibly linked to a reported outbreak of cholera in eastern Cuba. The Panamerican Health Organization (PAHO) issued an epidemiological alert noting the presence of cholera in Cuba and confirming that foreign travelers have contracted cholera during recent trips to Cuba.

This is an annual report produced in conjunction with the Regional Security Office at the Consulate in Ciudad Juarez…“Critical” crime threat level for this industrial city of 1.2 million is well-deserved. Violence is an everyday occurrence in Juarez. There are no particular sections of the city to avoid as violence can occur anywhere, anytime.
