CDC Notice Link


An epidemic cholera strain has been confirmed in Haiti, causing the first cholera outbreak in Haiti in at least 100 years. Cholera is a potentially fatal bacterial infection that causes severe diarrhea and dehydration.


Link above the text leads to the article which includes information on symptoms and for travelers.

Jeeze, lots of outbreaks it seems. Really shows how you can take your health for granted sometimes.

Wow, haven't heard anything about cholera since second grade when my whole wagon party died of it on our way to Oregon.

Protip: Always ford the river.

Ha. It's not unlikely in the poorer countries though, that's for sure.

This is old news. The CDC ssued a notice in Oct. 2010 about Cholera in Haiti. By Jan 2011 thousands had been sick or died. It was traced back to some UN Peace Keepers that had been brought in to help after the earthquake. I have no idea why they are issuing another Notice now.
