waterborne bacteria > cholera > infections        USA

 

Cholera

is an acute, diarrheal illness

caused by infection of the intestine

with the toxigenic bacterium

Vibrio cholerae serogroup O1 or O139.

 

An estimated 2.9 million cases

and 95,000 deaths occur each year

around the world.

 

The infection is often mild

or without symptoms,

but can sometimes be severe.

 

Approximately

one in 10 (10%) infected persons

will have severe disease characterized

by profuse watery diarrhea, vomiting,

and leg cramps.

 

In these people,

rapid loss of body fluids

leads to dehydration and shock.

 

Without treatment,

death can occur within hours.

Cholera causes

profuse diarrhea and vomiting,

which can lead to death by dehydration,

sometimes within a matter of hours.
