The bacterium that causes cholera is usually found in food or water contaminated. Also poor hygienic conditions help this disease to spread. Normally spreads in places with poor sanitation facilities. Severe diarrhoeas with water stools is the most common symptom of cholera. There could also be vomiting with immediate water loose and muscle cramps.
