Cholera, the virulent bacterial disease is killing the young and the old in the southern African country of Zimbabwe, with health authorities reporting more than 150 suspected deaths and over 8,000 suspected cases since February. Many like Mangosho, 50, fear their family might be next. Cholera is a water-borne disease caused by ingesting contaminated food or water and can kill within hours if left untreated, yet it is usually easily treated by rehydrating patients if cases are caught in time.
