  1. Survival of classic cholera in Bangladesh.

    Article - En anglais

    During the present cholera pandemic the EI Tor biotype of Vibrio cholerae has completely displaced the classic biotype, except in Bangladesh.

    We studied the distribution of these two biotypes in twenty-four rural districts during epidemics in 1988-89; there was clustering of the classic biotype in the southern region and of the EI Tor biotype in all other regions.

    These findings suggest that the southern coastal region is now (and may always have been) the habitat of classic cholera.
