Reason #1 is the way we travel.

Haitians are packed like sardines in tap-taps and traffic busses in the big cities and in busses going to the provinces. Anyone infected can spread it so quickly it's not even funny.

Reason #2 is because of the way we buy food products in street markets.

The way Haitians by food products is a disaster waiting to happen with COVID-19.

People go to the market place and they barter. They go around touching fruits and vegetables, everything the merchants are selling and they're rubbing against each other in these marketplaces.

So an infected person who goes to market will infect tens, possibly hundreds of people before he returns home.
