Cholera is a bacterial illness caused by consuming food or water contaminated with the bacteria Vibrio cholerae. This disease is rare in Ontario and is usually acquired in countries with poor sanitation. Symptoms can range from mild to severe, including profuse watery diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. The resulting loss of fluids can rapidly lead to severe dehydration and requires urgent treatment.
