Add comment on:Cholera in Haiti: a foreseeable result of a criminal system
The following excerpts from an article from A World to Win News Service are about the cholera epidemic now devastating Haiti. Cholera is an acute bacterial infection of the intestine that causes intense diarrhea and vomiting—it can kill a person within hours if untreated. But if there is prompt medical care, most people with cholera can be successfully treated if they just are given water with sugar and salt. Cholera is most often spread through water contaminated by human waste, and cholera epidemics can be easily prevented if clean water and sanitation systems are available.
