    Etiology. Cholera can be an endemic, epidemic, or a pandemic disease. Initiation and maintenance of epidemic and pandemic disease by V cholerae result from human infection and poor sanitation with assistance from human migration and seasonal warming of coastal waters.. Owing to the relatively large infectious dose, transmission occurs almost exclusively via contaminated water or food. Cholera is not endemic to Canada and cases in Ontario are directly or indirectly associated with travel to endemic regions of the world. In recent years, outbreaks have been reported in areas of the Caribbean including Cuba, Dominican Republic, and Haiti. 5 Seven cases were reported in Ontario from to , for an average of oneFile Size: KB.

An account of the several diffusions of the disease in that country from till , with an outline of the geography, ethnography, and trade connections of the regions through which the epidemics passed. Cholera outbreaks in East Africa this year in Somalia and Kenya serve as a sombre reminder of how much further we have to go on the road travelled since the world's first cholera pandemic in

    Cholera is an acute, diarrheal illness caused by infection of the intestine with the bacterium Vibrio cholerae. An estimated million cases and over , deaths occur each year around the world. The infection is often mild or without symptoms, but can sometimes be severe. Approximately one in 10 (5 to 10 percent) infected persons will have severe disease characterized by profuse watery.

Cholera is also common in developing countries, where suboptimal sanitation practices are responsible for its spread. If not treated, cholera has a fatality rate of over 60%.

Cholera occurs in Africa, Asia, Central and South America, and more recently, in parts of the Caribbean. Cholera does not occur in the UK but is sometimes reported in. Cholera can be endemic, epidemic, or pandemic. For centuries, cholera has remained endemic in countries bordering the Bay of Bengal and has spread in periodic pandemic waves.
