Haiti bans its citizens from UN mission against Ebola

By Amelie Baron

PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) - Haitian volunteers have been banned from departing for African countries hit by the Ebola virus, the government said on Friday, citing other diseases that have devastated the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere.

A statement signed by the Ministers of Health, Interior and Defense was released after news appeared on social networks that the United Nations was recruiting volunteers to respond to the Ebola outbreak.

In the document dated Oct. 2, the ministers forbade any agency to organize recruitment of Haitian volunteers, including the U.N. Mission for Ebola Emergency Response (UNMEER).

The ministers called for "the common sense of every citizen to avoid other more dramatic situations than what we have experienced in the recent past."

A cholera epidemic hit Haiti four years ago, and this year there was an outbreak of the mosquito-borne virus known as chikungunya, with tens of thousands of suspected cases.

Since October, 2010, Haiti's cholera epidemic has killed 8,500 people and infected more than 700,000. It may have been brought to Haiti by Nepalese peace keepers stationed near a major river.

Cholera, which had not been documented in Haiti in almost 100 years prior to the outbreak, is an infection that causes severe diarrhea that can lead to dehydration and death, and is caused by poor sanitation.

Minister of Defense Lener Renauld described the Oct. 2 statement as a "warning," adding that "it's a question of public health and security to avoid any (Ebola) epidemic crisis happening in Haiti."

Last month, the Minister of Health recommended that all international agencies "suspend any rotation of members coming from countries where Ebola cases have been found," including Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Nigeria.

The announcement was made "to restore the confidence of our citizens," said Health Minister Florence Duperval Guillaume. "It may be much stronger than necessary but think of those citizens who have been so traumatized, after the earthquake, after cholera, and after chikungunya. We can not afford to take an additional trauma."

That's pretty bad when Haiti knows better regarding how to protect it's people from Ebola than the United States does

The liberal elite ... know that the people simply cannot be trusted; that they are incapable of just and fair self-government; that left to their own devices, their society will be racist, sexist, homophobic, and inequitable -- and the liberal elite know how to fix things. They are going to help us live the good and just life, even if they have to lie to us and force us to do it. And they detest those who stand in their way."

Maybe it is time to move to a third world country, lib. They seem to have it all figured out to your liking. Enjoy!

Have you narrowed your selection of socialist countries to move to yet? Sounds like there is a country that you would love just south of Florida .

You need to learn to read if you want to have discussions on a message board. Where have I ever suggested that the US government should act like Cuban government? Right, I haven't. You, on the other hand, are demanding right here in this thread that the US government acts like the Haitian government. And in another thread you posted similar demands that the US government follows the lead of the governments of Congo, Rwanda and a number of other third world countries in Africa. The record is clear, lib.
