You've heard the word "Cholera epidemic" before but how scared should we Haitians be when a doctor declares that this is just the wave before the tsunami hits?

If this cholera epidemic in Haiti that has already killed 1,700 people is just the wave, then we are in big trouble.

Here is what St. John's doctor Tiffany Keenan told CBC news:

"What we are hearing now is that this is the wave before the tsunami hits. Then we can expect that this is going to go on for several months and our need for more staff is going to expand in the very near future"

Dr. Keenan says that her little clinic north of Cap Haitien has been operating 24 hours a day since November 22 because "The local hospitals are overrun with cholera patients and under-staffed"

Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) reported that they have treated more than 41,000 people with cholera...

And this is just the wave before the tsunami hits?

Oh Boy!

Will Haiti be able to kill this monster?

I will go as far as to say: Our independence is now in process, for when we thought we had won our freedom over two hundred plus years ago, it was a mere deception which only placed us in greater
