    Cholera is an infection of the small intestine by some strains of the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. Symptoms may range from none, to mild, to severe. The classic symptom is large amounts of watery diarrhea that lasts a few days. Vomiting and muscle cramps may also occur. Diarrhea can be so severe that it leads within hours to severe dehydration and electrolyte imbalance. Cholera is an intestinal infection caused by bacteria. The disease is often contracted from drinking unclean water. Each year, million to 4 million people around the world suffer from cholera to , people die of the disease, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).

      The annual wet season brings heavy rainfall to the densely populated country of Bangladesh. It also brings a fatal illness. Cholera, a bacterial infection spread by contaminated water, strikes the region twice a year, hitting once in the dry season when river flow is low, and then again during the fall wet season, when heavy rains swell the rivers to overflowing, often flooding the low-lying.   Oral Cholera Vaccines (OCVs) CDC works closely with task force partners on planning, implementing, monitoring and evaluating oral cholera vaccines. In , a global stockpile was established to ensure that these vaccines are rapidly available for outbreaks and emergencies in cholera hotspots in endemic countries.

    For the first time, the transmission of cholera has been tracked at the household level across Dhaka, Bangladesh, a city with a 'hyper-endemic' level of the disease. Researchers found that nearly. Cholera is endemic in approximately 50 countries (defined as having reported cholera cases in at least three of the five past years), mostly in Africa and Asia. In addition, epidemics due to V. cholerae have occurred throughout Africa, Asia, the Middle East, South and Central America, and the Caribbean, and can be particularly extensive [ 3 ].

We carried out investigation of two cholera outbreaks, for identification, antimicrobial susceptibility testing, phage typing and molecular characterization of isolated Vibrio cholerae O1, and to suggest prevention and control measures.

Methods: A total of 22 rectal swabs and 20 stool samples were collected. Although much focus is placed on cholera epidemics, the greatest burden occurs in settings in which cholera is endemic, including areas of.

PREPAREDNESS, PREVENTION AND CONTROL Elizabeth Lamond and Jesee Kinyanjui June NON-ENDEMIC COUNTRY (NEW) OUTBREAKS Because the incubation period is very short (two hours to five days), the number of cases can rise very rapidly (see Box 1 and Box 2).

Cholera is on the rise with an estimated billion people at risk in endemic countries and an estimated 3 million to 5 million cases anddeaths per year worldwide. In many endemic countries, children under 5 account for more than half of the global incidence and deaths.

The V. cholerae, both O1 and O serogroups, produce a potent enterotoxin (cholera toxin) responsible for the lethal symptoms of the O1 serogroup has two biotypes (phenotypes), classical and El Tor; each of which has. Cholera is caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholera which is usually found in water or food contaminated by faeces of a person who is infected.

That cholera is a waterborne disease has long been known (4–6). priority in areas with endemic cholera, since outbreaks of the disease can disrupt health systems While long-term intervention to improve water and sanitation should be the mainstay of cholera control measures, the group recom-mended the use of oral cholera vaccines (OCVs) to obtain a short-term effect for an immediate response.

Given the. The epidemic and pandemic characteristics of cholera, although well appreciated and described for ∼ years, remain poorly understood.

One estimate suggests that more than 66 million people are at risk of cholera with an incidence rate of per Bangladesh remains endemic for cholera with a biannual peak in certain areas of the country [2, 3].

Cholera transmission increases during both floods and droughts. This may be due to lack of surveillance as well as proper laboratory support and, therefore, the burden of cholera in India is clearly underestimated 9. Data from population-based diarrhoea surveillance in an endemic area of Kolkata, India, revealed a cholera incidence of cases per person-years If one extrapolates these phage data.

Cholera continues to be endemic in large number of states in the eastern, western, northern and southern parts of India and there were 38 cholera outbreak reports published in India during to. European travellers should be informed about the availability of a cholera vaccine before travelling to destinations where cholera is endemic [].

Travellers to endemic countries should follow good personal hygiene practices and drink only bottled water to prevent or minimise the risk for Vibrio cholerae -infection.
