Caption: Cholera sufferer, historical artwork. Cholera is an acute illness caused by the Gram- negative bacterium Vibrio cholerae which colonises the small bowel. Cholera starts with diarrhoea and vomiting between one and five days after infection. Up to half a litre of fluid may be lost each hour and, if not replaced, death from dehydration follows within only a few hours. Cholera has caused seven global pandemics since the first emerged in 1816. The stretcher here is a design created in 1831. Image taken from Relacao, Historica, Statiscae, Medicae da Cholera Morbus by F. of Assis Souzavez, Paris, 1833.
