The event took place in the Spanish Autonomous Community of Castilla-la-Mancha. After the incident, the local authorities sealed off one of the farms in the province of Toledo. It was there that an underage resident drank unpurified water. He was later diagnosed with cholera. The girl was hospitalized. She has now been discharged from the hospital.
According to preliminary data, the water was drawn from a well. The authorities are trying to find out the source of its origin, as well as understand if there are other infected.
