Flooding and landslides from a tropical storm and hurricane in Mexico last month could have contributed to 171 cases of cholera reported in the country from Sept. 9 to Saturday.
The Ministry of Health in Mexico confirmed one death from infections that resulted from this strain of cholera. The illness has resulted in 39 hospitalizations.
One hundred and fifty-seven of the reported cases were reported in the sovereign state of Hidalgo. The remaining cases were reported in Mexico and the states of San Luis Potosi and Veracruz.
