Caption: 19th Century cholera victim. 1845 illustration of a priest reading the last rites to a man suffering from cholera. Cholera is a bacterial infection of the small intestine that is transmitted via contaminated food or water. The Vibrio cholerae bacteria produce a toxin that affects the intestines, causing diarrhoea and severe dehydration. These symptoms of the disease may be fatal if left untreated. Since it became widespread in the 19th Century, cholera has killed tens of millions of people.
