Haiti investigates suspected Cholera cases after one case confirmed
According to the UN, nearly 800,000 Haitians have been infected by cholera and more than 9,000 have died in the last Cholera outbreak.
Haiti's Health Ministry said on Sunday that one case of cholera was confirmed and several other suspected cases are being examined.
Between October 2010 and February 2019, the country suffered tremendously from a massive cholera outbreak that was brought by a UN peacekeeping force sent to the Caribbean country.
Since armed gangs have imposed a blockade that has prevented the distribution of fuel across the country, causing a blockade that caused businesses and hospitals to shut down due to severe shortages, a new streak of Cholera would devastate the island.
Haiti, an ex-French colony, was the first free black republic in the world. It was the first independent state in the Caribbean and the second independent state in the Western Hemisphere after the US.
Due to its heroic anti-colonial past, Haiti had suffered a long history of political turmoil and imperialist insurgencies by the West, particularly the US.
The West robbed Haiti's chance to bloom into a free and autonomous country as it sought to prevent the potential threat of an anti-western influence from developing in the Caribbean region.
Haiti currently relies on the UN and NGOs to provide most of its basic services and continues to endure rampant corruption among its highest ranks - most of whom were backed by the US and western countries.
