Cholera Treatment and Prevention

According to the, Cholera is an infectious disease that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if untreated. It is caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with a bacterium called Vibrio cholerae. The disease is most common in places with poor sanitation.
To protect yourself and your family against Cholera, it is advised to use only water that has been boiled, water that has been chemically disinfected or bottled water. Cholera is highly treatable, but because dehydration can happen quickly, it's important to get cholera treatment immediately.
