A study has revealed that Nepalese peacemakers have brought strain of cholera with them to Haiti. The study has accused them of spreading cholera from town of Mirebalais to rest of the province through waterways.
The wide spread disease was discovered by the government of Haiti in the month of October. Since now it has killed more than 5,000 people and has made 363,000 people sick with disease. The researchers of the study said, “Our findings strongly suggest that contamination of the Artibonite (river) and 1 of its tributaries downstream from a military camp triggered the epidemic”.
The researchers are determined that the epidemic was caused by the Nepalese as they could not find any other of it entering through the isolated Meille river. However, the UN report has ruled out the allegation imposed by Haiti government. It said that Haiti was hit by epidemic because of "confluence of circumstances," including a lack of water infrastructure in Haiti and Haitians' dependence on the river system.
Although Haiti government is accusing Nepalese peacemakers for bringing the strains of cholera, there are few who believe that the bacterium was brought by travelers. It seems like the uncontrollable cholera in Haiti has made the government furious as it is failing to save lives.
