Love in a time of Cholera

Cholera. Iraq has gotten so bad that there's an impending epidemic of Cholera. Partly because of a slowdown on imports of Chlorine, because the trucks were being used as bombs 9 months ago. So far there are 25,000 sick, 10 dead, with expectations that the epidemic will peak in October.
You will hear that Iraq has had Cholera outbreaks before, with 1999 being the latest with 30 people sickened. The current rate of sickness of 25,000 is quite an improvement for that little bacteria.
