There is a drug dealer who has been exposed to cholera but he dies of an overdose. Anybody who takes the drug contaminated with cholera will contract it. Anybody who eats food that has been touched by them will contract it.

An epidemiologist has to deal with her own demons and deal with hundreds of patients in all the hospitals in the city in order to control the outbreak.
