What is Cholera?

Cholera is an acute infection that affects the intestines. Cholera affects between 3 and 5 million people each year and causes 100,000 deaths annually. Cholera is most common in underdeveloped nations that have food and water sources contaminated by feces. Cholera can be a very serious illness, however, it is also preventable and treatable.1
 
What Causes Cholera?

Cholera is an intestinal infection caused by the Vibrio cholerae bacteria. When ingested, these bacteria produce a potent and deadly toxin called CTX. When CTX gets released in the intestines, it binds to the intestinal walls and interferes with digestion. This is what results in the watery diarrhea that’s associated with cholera. Continuous diarrhea leads to dehydration and loss of electrolytes.1,2

People contract cholera by ingesting food and water contaminated by the feces of other people who are infected with cholera. Improper water and food treatment, as well as a lack of clean water for rehydration, are what cause cholera and its severe symptoms.1,2

Cholera Symptoms
 
Cholera symptoms can range from mild to severe. In some cases, cholera may result in no symptoms at all. Severe symptoms of cholera can include:

  • Heavy vomiting
  • Ongoing watery diarrhea
  • Leg cramps
  • Dehydration

Most cholera symptoms appear within 3-5 days after becoming infected.
