Cholera confirmed in Spain’s Toledo province

Cholera confirmed in Spain’s Toledo province

In the Spanish province of Toledo, the authorities of the autonomous community of Castile-la-Mancha sealed one of the farms, because there was a case of cholera infection.


It became known that a minor resident of the autonomous community of Madrid drank untreated water on the farm and was hospitalized after contracting cholera.

According to preliminary data, the liquid was taken from a local well, but authorities are trying to more accurately determine the source of its origin.


If the version with the well is confirmed, then this cholera infection could become the first autochthonous (independent of external factors) case in the country since 1979.


Local authorities stressed that there are no risks for the local population yet. But the farm was closed to the public.
