In Zimbabwe the National Water Authority is failing to supply water to large parts of the urban areas. This has resulted in residences drawing on Boerhole Water and others purchasing from borehole owners. My question is what is the risk of being infected by the Cholera Bacteria especially in schools who use the water to wash with but not to drink?
