KLM havs warned 237 passengers, on a flight from New Delhi to Amsterdam on Sunday, of which a large number transferred at Amsterdam and flew on to destinations in the US with NorthWest.
KLM and NW warned them to undergo medical tests due to the slight chance they have been infected with cholera.
A boy on the plane was found to have developed symptoms of cholera. Cholera is spread by contaminated water and food.

They have done this before, with a suspected SARS case. Just in case of course, and it gives people a (false) sense of security when they know your airline is concerned about your health.
KLM Emergency Management considers these cases a good try-out for when something serious happens, BTW.
