What is Cholera?

Cholera is a bacterial infection caused by Vibrio cholerae, which can lead to severe diarrhoea and dehydration. The infection is usually spread through contaminated food and water and is more prevalent in areas with poor sanitation and hygiene. While cholera can be treated with antibiotics and rehydration therapy, it is crucial for travellers to get vaccinated to prevent the disease altogether.

Who is at risk of contracting Cholera while traveling?

Travelers to areas with poor sanitation and hygiene are at the greatest risk of contracting cholera. This includes areas with limited access to clean water and sanitation facilities, such as parts of Africa, Southeast Asia, and South America. Additionally, those who consume contaminated food and water, or who come into close contact with infected individuals, are also at risk.
