The outbreak of cholera in the northern Indian state of Karnataka started back in May and has since seen more than 120 cases reported. The number of cases in Humnabad taluka has increased to 40, and other cases have been reported in Mustapur wadi village, Kallur, and Sindhankera.
Emergency response teams have been sent to the affected areas and the public is being encouraged to build and use toilets, as the spread of cholera is increased by open defecation.
