To investigate the spreading speed of cholera, Codeço’s cholera model (2001) is developed by a reaction-diffusion model that incorporates both indirect environment-to-human and direct human-to-human transmissions and the pathogen diffusion. The two transmission incidences are supposed to be saturated with infective density and pathogen density. The basic reproduction number is defined and the formula for minimal wave speed is given. It is proved by shooting method that there exists a traveling wave solution with speed for cholera model if and only if .
