cholera is an extremely dangerous disease because of the severity of it''s symptoms and the rapid deterioration that it causes. If identified and treated early the disease is completely curable and is unlikely to be life threatening, but in many developing and underdeveloped countries factors like poverty and poor access to medical facilities lead to delays in treatment which often prove to be fatal.
