A 33-year-old member asked:

Does putting ice into whisky prevent the spread of cholera?

Dr. Joel Gallant
Infectious Disease 36 years experience
No: In fact, in the extremely unlikely event that you happened to be drinking whiskey in a cholera-endemic area, the ice might be made of unpurified water and might cause infection. You won't get cholera from whiskey drunk neat.
Dr. Heidi Fowler
Psychiatry 25 years experience
No: Cholera is spread through ingestion of contaminated water and food. The use of whisky would not treat Cholera.
