Bad news for Haitian Farmers... There is another epidemic waiting in line to attack Haiti... This time it is the PORK population, more than one million, whose life is in danger... Haiti Department of Agriculture has just issued an alert about Porcine Epidemic diarrhea (PED) a deadly pig disease may cause havoc in the pig population...

Porcine Epidemic diarrhea or (DEP for diarrhée épidémique porcine in French) is already the United States, Canada, Brazil and Mexico. Salon.com says Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus is as nasty a problem, "a deadly pig disease has the U.S. scrambling for a solution."

Now, this pig epidemic diarrhea, it is much closer to Haiti. It is right across the border in the neighboring Dominican Republic.

If you want to know how serious this is READ THIS from Salon.com about what it is doing to the pigs in the United States:

"A deadly disease is spreading rapidly through the nation's pig population, killing hogs by the millions and posing a major threat to the U.S. pork industry. Called Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus, or PEDv, it's as nasty as it sounds: it causes vomiting and diarrhea in piglets and is nearly always fatal. Pre-weaning it has a 100 percent mortality rate."

If this disease gets into Haiti, it will be PEPADEP all over again!

My guess is Haiti's pig farmers are in deep trouble... I am sorry to say this...

What do you think about this?

oh oh, I guess it's time to ban Dominican products again.

Eh?

Only this time the Dominican Republic should flex its economic and military power against Haiti in response to any attempt to discredit and damage the DR's economy.

Malédictyon, plichon, madichon sou cochon ak tout lòt bèt malprop et souyé yo.

Haiti Problèm pi rèd - Genyen yon MALADI KOCHON ki sanlè rantre an Haiti, SI oswa Lè li rantre, KOCHON Haiti yo pwal gen dyare, vomisman, anpil ladan yo pwal mouri...
