Abstract

In this note, we study deterministic and stochastic models for the spread of cholera. The deterministic model for the total number of cholera cases fits the observed total number of cholera cases in some recent outbreaks. The stochastic model for the total number of cholera cases leads to a binomial type distribution with a mean that agrees with the deterministic model.
