Were you looking for information about Cholera? Chalera is a common misspelling of cholera.
Cholera is a diarrheal illness caused by a bacterial infection in the intestines. It is typically transmitted through eating food or drinking water that is contaminated with the Vibrio cholerae bacterium. Cholera is not a major threat in the United States, where there are advanced water and sanitation systems, but is still very common in developing countries. Treatment for the condition involves antibiotics and fluid replacement. If treatment is started in a timely manner, the mortality rate is reduced to less than 1 percent.
