Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Through June 26, 1991, cholera has been reported from seven countries in the Western Hemisphere: Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, and the United States. In the United States, a total of 14 confirmed cases of epidemic-associated cholera have been reported among persons in Florida (one) (1), Georgia (one) (2), New Jersey (eight) (1), and New York (four). This report summarizes information regarding the four cases reported in New York and describes a new laboratory procedure used to confirm the vehicle of transmission in this outbreak.
