Dehydration from rapid loss of body fluids is the reason the disease can be deadly if the patient is not treated.
The disease’s short incubation period of two hours to five days increases the likelihood of outbreaks.

    There are three two-dose oral cholera vaccines available, Dukoral, Shanchol and Euvichol.
    Cholera is rare in industrialized nations.
