Cholera is one of the most feared diseases and many people die of the disease each year. The disease was first noted by British troops near Jessore, India in 1817. By 1832, it had spread across Russia and Germany to England.  During this time, cholera was recognized as a European disease,  but with improvements in sanitation and the provision of safe drinking water, the disease was eliminated from Europe.
