Cholera epidemic in Haiti..

Over 10,000 people are suspected to have Cholera in Haiti. This is a serious concern. The news broke a while ago, but it is worth repeating. As you know, the Bahamas has more than their fair share of Haitian immigrants that come to the Bahamas-- an epidemic in Haiti, may mean a spread of the disease in the Bahamas.

At the very least, we should all be concerned about Haiti, overall. As you would be well aware, the earthquake last year in Haiti, still has the country on it's knees. Development Aid is still hard to get to the areas that need it the most. And, with a major disease outbreak, things may get more difficult and hard to manage. See attached a video from the UN on the seriousness of the outbreak.
