Wiped out? Edit

I just watched Time's Arrow and I didn't see where it was said that cholera was wiped out- in fact Crusher said that cholera "isn't that virulent", present tense, which suggests it still exists in some form, even if it is not running rampant throughout Earth. I assume the line is an inference from the general statements made throughout Trek of disease being eliminated, but clearly since there are still doctors not all disease was wiped out, it is just easily cured and people don't suffer(I think). 31dot (talk) 19:29, September 22, 2012 (UTC)

It's very weird, because it was extremely virulent in the 19th Century, killing tens of thousands in a matter of days. 96.238.211.171 01:44, June 11, 2013 (UTC)

100,000-130,000 people a year still die from it according to government health sources. Sounds virulent to me. 66.67.32.161 21:28, July 21, 2014 (UTC)
