Cholera

What Is Cholera? (CDC.com) :

The cholera bacterium is usually found in water or in foods that have been contaminated by feces from a person infected with cholera bacteria. Cholera is most likely to occur and spread in places with inadequate water treatment, poor sanitation, and inadequate hygiene. (CDC.com)

How To Protect & Prevent Yourself:

  • All visitors or residents in areas where cholera is occurring or has occurred should follow recommendations to prevent getting sick:

    • Drink only bottled, boiled, or chemically treated water and bottled or canned  beverages. (Make sure the seal has not been broken) Carbonated water may be safer than non-carbonated water.
    • Avoid tap water, fountain drinks, and ice cubes.
    • To disinfect your own water, choose one of the following options:
      • Boil it for 1 minute
      • Filter it and add either ½ an iodine tablet
    • Wash your hands often with soap and clean water, especially before you eat or prepare food and after using the bathroom.
      • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol, If no water and soap are available
    • Use bottled, boiled, or chemically treated water to wash dishes, brush teeth, wash and prepare food, and make ice.
    • Eat foods that are packaged or that are freshly cooked and served hot.
      • Do not eat raw or undercooked meats and seafood, or raw or undercooked fruits and vegetables unless they are peeled.
    • Dispose of feces in a sanitary manner to prevent contamination of water and food sources.
  • Get Vaccinated
