The Haitian government needs to ask for a full investigation into this 'advanced' Cholera... Why are the new procedures in place to prevent the spread not working? Is Cholera in the medications, the bottled water, the air... what the hell is going on? The Haitian government needs to find out, Cholera can be controlled by simple procedures, which I'm sure have been ordered there.. so what are people just disregarding the procedures like boiling water, and only drinking purified water..and carrying water mixed with sugar and salt with , watching what they eat...and so forth..

...this doesn't sound like Cholera anymore, this sounds like something similar to Cholera transmitted human-to-human contact, with an airborne transmission as well...

The amount of cases simply makes no sense, I mean what, will Haiti have the global yearly average of deaths from Cholera in their country in four to five months?

...I'm talking the GLOBAL rate..

because the pace of this 'Cholera' is unbelievable ...it has a awesome rate of transmission or infection.. it really sounds suspicious, it's hard to speculate..but the rate of deaths makes absolutely no sense... unless people are 'purposely' drinking waters with Cholera in it... knowingly, as if wanting to commit suicide..

I find that hard to believe..
