What is Cholera?

Cholera is an infection caused by a bacterium called Vibrio cholerae that can cause severe diarrhoea. It can lead to serious dehydration and shock.

You can catch Cholera from:

  • Drinking unclean water

  • Eating food (particularly shellfish) that’s been in unclean water

  • Eating food that’s been handled by an infected person.

Signs & Symptoms

Symptoms include sudden, profuse watery diarrhoea, with associated nausea and vomiting.

 

If untreated, cholera can rapidly lead to serious dehydration and shock. Of these, 50% with serious complications, die. With quick and effective treatment, the risk of dying is less than 1%.
