08/21/13 - Washington Post - US issues 'security message' for travelers to Cuba
The Pan American Health Organization says an Italian, two Venezuelans and
two Chileans who traveled to Cuba contracted cholera in late July and early
Cuban authorities acknowledged a rare outbreak last summer after many years
when the waterborne disease was not present on the island.
This January the government announced 51 new cases in the capital, but
there has been nothing official since then.
Cholera can kill quickly through severe dehydration but is treatable if
detected in time.
