A grim picture to post! A startling reminder of why we should remember Robert Koch today, on the anniversary of his death in 1910.
CHOLERA! It was one of the most deadly diseases of the 19th century. It was a harsh reality!
In 1883, Robert Koch identified V. cholerae as the bacillus causing the disease. German-born Robert is best known for his research and discoveries into anthrax, cholera and tuberculosis. He was considered as one of the founders of bacteriology. His discovery of the germs of both the anthrax and tuberculosis diseases provided techniques and methods for others to use in identifying other germ-caused illnesses. A Nobel Prize recipient, Robert’s sheer determination and persistence has had a major impact on the medical world and his story deserves wide recognition. Learn more about Robert Koch today.
