All Haitian Passengers are to be screened for cholera

This is breaking news. All persons from Haiti are to be screened before being allowed to enter the country.


All Haitiana entering Jamaica are to be screened for cholera

The Director of Emergency Management and Special Services in the Health Ministry stated that All persons entering the country by airports or by seaports from Haiti are to face quarantine before allowed into the country. This is what was reported today by Jamaicaobservator.Com

Jamaica is so far the first country to require Haitians or people arriving from Haiti to undergo a screening before allowed into Jamaica.

According to Doctor Marion Bullock-DuCasse, Director of Emergency Disaster and Special Services in Jamaica, all persons arriving directly from Haiti will be taken to a room for an interview and be assessed by the Jamaican Quarantine experts to determine if they have been exposed to or acquire the cholera virus.

What countries will be next requiring Haitians to be screened before entering their country?

Do you think it is a reasonable action taken by the Jamaican Government to screen all Haitians entering Jamaica for cholera?

Do you thin it is likely for other governments do take similar actions?

Do you think it's humiliating for us to be marked in such a way with this disease?

Go head Jamaica, do your thing.

But remember your life depend on tourists and now is the season.

When you do get "CHOLERA", please remember to exclude Haiti from your list. Clolera gets to Haiti through foreigners, so don't think you are the wisest

I think that Jamaica did a good thing to protect their people by making sure that Haitians who are traveling to Jamaica be screened for cholera before they enter.

This is the role of the government to protect its citizens.

We have been doing a good job in preventing cholera from Jamaica.

People coming from Haiti should not be allowed to enter the country for at least one

U.N. brought cholera to Haiti.

The world does not look favorably to Haitians.

Because of years of instability and political chaos, the international community invaded the country with foreign troop.

The only one who can solve our problems is

This is we brought on ourselves.

Haitian leaders have not been good leaders.

They are only interested in making money.

This is why a country like Jamaica can be taking precautionary measures against Haitian for
