Cholera causes
As well as having a drastic affect on individuals, cholera can be disastrous for communities and countries. Cholera outbreaks tend to affect large numbers of people, especially children. This means that those who aren't actually sick have to look after those that are. The result is that people are unable to work or look after themselves. Financially this can cripple a community.
