Cholera is a diarrhoeal infection that is a severe threat particularly in developing and
under-developed nations where sanitation standards are poor. Most cholera cases
are reported in African countries, but that does not mean that if you are living in a
developed country cholera won't outbreak there. The fact is it can outbreak
anywhere in the world, so if you're planning to travel it is important to take cholera
vaccine London to stay on the safer side during your stay abroad.
The cholera bacteria are passed in the bowel motions of an infected person, which
makes it very important to wash your hands before you go to toilet. In both under-
developed and developing countries there are high chances of drinking water being
contaminated with the bacteria. If you're planning to travel to any under-developed
or developing country or continent, it becomes very important for you to be extra
cautious regarding your personal hygiene and also make sure that you rent
accommodation with neat and clean surroundings.
Around 75% of people who are infected with cholera do not develop any symptoms.
One of the main reasons how they are able to get infected with cholera is that the
bacteria stay in their excretion for 7-14 days, potentially infecting other people too.
Symptoms of cholera begin to show all of a sudden- sometimes showing up as soon
as within couple of hours of drinking contaminated water or eating contaminated
food. In healthy travellers there is usually a mild cholera and diarrhoea may be the
only symptom. In severe cases of cholera, symptoms can be following:
Needing to go to toilet too frequently
Severe dehydration can become the main cause of kidney failure and death. Adults
and children are most affected by cholera. So, if you have kids accompanying to you
to foreign tour you should not take any chances with this dreaded infection. It can
be so severe that it can kill within hours, and people with low immunity stand to
suffer greater loss when and if they become infected with the cholera.
You must be thinking what to do in a case if you've got cholera. Well, the first thing
you need to do is not panic and seek immediate medical attention from a licensed
physician if you notice any symptoms related with cholera.
All travel vaccine recommendations can change due to seasonal variations, but
qualified and competent travel clinics have access to latest updates and changes
made to travel health services. Cholera vaccination is made to drink in a liquid form,
rather than an injection. You are given cholera vaccination under the supervision of
an experienced travel doctor who makes sure that you are also given proper set of
instructions you need to follow before or after taking this medicine.
