More than 150 cases of cholera have been reported across five states in central Mexico, with the highest number of cases in Hidalgo. At least one person has died. Officials say that Veracruz, San Luis Potosi and Mexico City are also among the areas with documented infections in the region’s first outbreak since 2001. Cholera is a water-borne disease that causes severe diarrhea and vomiting, which if not treated can lead to dehydration and death. Travelers can avoid exposure by eating only well-cooked meals and drinking only safely bottled or boiled beverages.
