Caption: Death striking down troops with cholera during the Balkan Wars (1912). This illustration comes from 'Le Petit Journal Illustre' of December 1912. Cholera is caused by a bacterium called Vibrio cholerae. It is an acute infection of the small intestines causing severe vomiting & diarrhoea leading to dehydration. Dehydration & the consequent imbalance of body fluids may result in rapid death. The bacterium is a water borne pathogen, transmitted to humans through drinking water contaminated by human or animal faeces. Epidemics of cholera such as that represented here are associated with poor sanitary conditions.
