640k cases? That ought to be enough for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to do something about it.

Dear World,

Stop shiatting and pissing in the water around you. It will make you sick.

Cholera in a refugee camp overcrowded and without proper sanitation?

The UN must have brought it there!
 
2013-01-24 02:23:42 PM
That's important because the U.N. insists that whatever way cholera got to Haiti, terrible sanitary conditions and lack of clean water were responsible for its remarkably fast spread.

But lawyer Brian Concannon doesn't buy that.

"It's like lighting a fire in a dry field on a windy day and then blaming the wind or the drought for the fire," says Concannon, who directs a Boston-based group called the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti.


Sounds like their statement was accurate then. The wind and drought would accelerate the pace of the fire, whatever way it was started.

there may have been 640K cases of of cholera but the UN didn't bring them all. A couple of UN Troopers were carriers of a local (for them) form of of cholera. Haiti's 1000's of years of not creating any kind of infrastructure or disaster planning took it from there.

Tell me about it. At least the other ailments will, eventually, kill you. Sean Penn just keeps nurturing you until you kill yourself.

Don't be bringing sense into this - there's a lawyer on the case, after all. The bucks must flow.

Vlad_the_Inaner: Cholera in a refugee camp overcrowded and without proper sanitation?

TFA: "Lantagne says comparison of the Haitian cholera strain with one circulating in Nepal around the same time shows the two differed in only 1 out of 4 million genetic elements.

"That's considered an exact match, that they're the same strain of cholera," she tells Shots.

Most scientists now think Nepalese soldiers unwittingly brought cholera to Haiti when they joined a U.N. peacekeeping force there in 2010. The outbreak started just downstream from their camp. Sewage from the camp spilled into a nearby river.
"

Sure seems like they did.

it also seems like lots of Hatians were consuming Nepalese river-poop. part of the solution needs to be a simple 'don't consume the poop of foreigners' education campaign.

Friend went to Haiti on a church mission. From his description of the place, and the photos I saw of it, it should be used for testing nuclear weapons.

Things have actually gotten worse and worse, since people of the world started "helping" the Haitians.

Germs are not plagues. Unless you are proposing that all people with any kind germs wear moon suits, something would have take the opportunity to thrive in the poor sanitary conditions. Don't mistake a proximate cause for a fundamental issue

Haiti had a little bit of a earthquake.
Everyone calm down, we don't even live there.
Oh my God it's a earthquake, check your butt for butthole AIDS.

groppet: Shouldnt they be at least be boiling any water they use?


Yes, but that would require effort on their part. They know eventually someone will come and boil the water for them while they continue to just sit on their ass doing nothing. Same with the welfare dopes in this country.

It's a poor country without much in the way of infrastructure, so it was quite likely that the river was the only source of water for those people.

Haiti has only been around for 200 years or so but I agree with you about the fact that they farked up their own country by not creating infrastructure and deforestation. Look at Haiti compared to the Dominican Republic. They share the island and DR is a reasonably nice place. What happened to Haiti? A long string of ruthless dictators robbing the populace is my guess.

And even so, even after a quake killed a quarter-million people, the UN was still able to show up and make things even worse. Truly there's no other organization like it.

Well, not really. That's just the excuse the local authoritarian (but capitalist and therefore awesome) government uses to avoid admitting it's their fault.

Nice job reading that article, especially the bits confirming that the one thing that hadn't plagued Haiti in a century was cholera, until the geniuses at the UN dropped in.

The UN made a horrible situation much,  much worse. They killed 7800 people, got 600,000 others sick, then covered it up. And they have moral authority why? Because their PR and their knobgobblers in the media say the UN means well?

Haiti really isn't a place worth saving. They are rapist savages there. The place was a shiat hole long before nature tried to purge them from the landscape.
