Untitled[edit]

Some say his "ineffective" TB "cure" was more lethal than the disease.[dead link] 142.177.126.57 01:22, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)

"Some" are remarkably ignorant, and remarkably willing to distort history and science to their own peculiar ends. Some others apparently have yet to meet a conspiracy theory they didn't like. - Nunh-huh 01:28, 20 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Translation needed[edit]

The German-language page is much more comprehensive. LeadSongDog 19:33, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Yes I agree, the German page needs to be translated. Aberjan (talk) 20:17, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

Similar name[edit]

I realise that there is a link to other people with the same surname, but it might be useful to state explicitly that Walter Karl Koch, rather than Robert Koch was responsible for naming Koch's triangle. After all, they were both German, both involved in medicine - it might avoid confusion. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.100.45.121 (talk) 20:33, 28 December 2008 (UTC)

Vibrio cholerae[edit]

In this edit's comment a question was asked that needs a response. The distinction amongst the organisms is that not all Vibrio are V. cholerae. Is there something in the article that makes this unclear? User:LeadSongDog come howl 04:03, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Monument out of whack[edit]

The editing of the final section is out of order -- talking about the monument delay before the reason for it? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.230.117.5 (talk) 16:04, 10 July 2010 (UTC)

Discovered the cause of cholera?[edit]

Did he realy discover V. cholera? see http://www.ph.ucla.edu/epi/snow/firstdiscoveredcholera.html — Preceding unsigned comment added by Healkids (talkcontribs) 04:57, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Cholera / Filippo Pacini[edit]

Shouldnt there be a bit at the beginning and/or in the section about Cholera about Filippo Pacini, the Italian who was actually the first person to isolate the cholera bacilus? I thik there should be... ΤΕΡΡΑΣΙΔΙΩΣ(Ταλκ) 18:28, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
