  Climate change influences cholera outbreaks

Photo of article Cholera is one of the most rapidly fatal diseases known and in its severest form it can cause death within a few hours, caused by a bacterium, the bacillus Vibrio cholerae. In 2004, 2 345 deaths and 101 383 cases of cholera, including 95 000 for the African continent, were reported to the World Health Organisation. Changes in the global climate have contributed to the spread of cholera; these stem from increases in the frequency of torrential rain, floods and periods of drought. A wide range of factors influence climatic conditions. Some of these depend on the region of the world, whereas others act on a global scale. Therefore, interactions between the climate and emergence of cholera must be studied region by region. To date, few studies have been undertaken in Africa, despite this being the very continent that gives the most cause for concern.
