Cholera is a dangerous infectious disease, the infection of which occurs through water. Symptoms of the disease are very similar to those of food poisoning. Such infectious diseases constantly threaten the inhabitants of Nigeria, as they do not have access to clean water. In April of this year, 13 people died of cholera in the state of Yobe, and in May 12 more people died as a result of cholera infection in Adamava state.
