Eva's Cholera project

I have just finished my second geography project on an infectious disease in Peru. I made a brochure on the disease and included information like what it is, how it is caused, how it can be prevented, vaccinanations, symptoms and all about the medicine needed to cure it.
I learned a lot about Cholera and that it is caused by drinking or eating excessive amounts of drink or food that contain Vibrio Cholerae 01.
If you are travelling abroad for long term you will be offered the Vaccine which is called Dukoral and it is an oral vaccine. If you dont want to get the vaccine you can prevent Cholera by only drinking bottled water and not eating anything that is undercooked or raw.
