Far East Cholera Check

MOSCOW -- Russian doctors in a region bordering China have examined 6,000 people in recent days to guard against a possible outbreak of cholera, a news report said Thursday.

The examinations began after three drivers returned to Russia's Primorye region from China and came down with the disease, Itar-Tass said.

The Russian doctors are convinced that the three acquired the disease while in China, the report added.
