Cholera can be deadly within hours

A report from CNN, excerpt :

" Ten months after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, a cholera outbreak north of Port-au-Prince is responsible for the deaths of at least 138 people, a U.N. official said Friday. More than 1,500 other cases have been reported.

Cholera is a bacterial illness that causes severe diarrhea and dehydration and can be lethal within hours if a person is not treated."
