Via International Business Times: South Korea: Second case of cholera emerges in country. Excerpt:
Health authorities in South Korea on Thursday (24 August) confirmed the second case of cholera in the country. A 73-year-old woman has been found contaminated with the water-borne disease, according to reports.
The South Gyeongsang Provincial Government said that the woman - a resident of the southern coast of the country - got the infections after eating seafood at a local restaurant.
Earlier this week the country confirmed the first case of the disease in 15 years. It was reported in the southern city of Gwangju on Tuesday by the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A 58-year-old man was then found infected with the disease.
Although, it is understood that there is no connection between the two affected people, but the common point is that both have got the infection after eating at restaurants. Investigations are underway and it is believed that the imported seafood in restaurants have cholera bacteria.
