Is Vibrio Cholerae Cholera a permanent disease to have? Does it stay and cause continual in the body for life? Does treatment cure Vibrio Cholerae?

Not permanent: Cholera is a diarrheal illness caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae. It runs it course over 1-2 weeks, then clears up.

If you are healthy or have recovered from cholera, no worries!
