Cholera in Urdu

بیکٹیریا کے ذریعے پھیلنے والی اs بیماری کو کولرا کے طور پر جاناجاتا ہے۔ یہ آلودگی والے پانی کی وجہ سے ہوتی ہے۔ ٹیکنالوجی میں ترقی اور ترقی یافتہ ممالک میں اس بیماری کے امکانات کم ہیں۔. کولرا کے امکانات غربت، جنگ اور انتہائی آبادی والے علاقوں میں ؎ مناسب حفظان صحت کے نہ ہونے سے بڑھ رہے ہیں.
