Sporadic cases of non-epidemic strains (so-called non-o1, non-o139 strains do occur in the usa, mostly along the gulf coast. I took care of such a case acquired in nyc from raw clams. Also, in the wake of the large outbreak of o1 cholera in haiti, a number of cases were brought into the usa by aid workers.
