Another tragedy hits Haiti, first it's hurricanes, then a devastating earthquake, now it's Cholera. It's likely that Cholera was brought to Haiti by Nepalese UN peacekeepers.  It started in the Artibonite Valley in central Haiti and has spread throughout the country.  Cholera can kill a healthy man or woman in a matter of hours.  However, very few people in Haiti are completely healthy and the infrastructure for clean water and sewer is almost zero.  Cholera in Haiti has developed into a major epidemic that will be prevalent for many years.
