Brazil Sends Haiti Four Tons of Aid Due to Cholera Outbreak

first_img The Brazilian Ministry of Public Health announced Wednesday that it is sending around four tons of medicine and supplies to Haiti in response to the cholera epidemic that has left 292 dead and 4,147 people undergoing treatment. The materials sent “will be used to treat those affected by the cholera epidemic that has reached the country” and will be transported from Brasilia by an Air Force plane expected to arrive in Port-au-Prince on Thursday morning. “Flasks of sodium hypochlorite, salts for oral rehydration, injectable solution, gloves, and equipment for solution delivery are among the material sent,” the ministry indicated. The ministry’s representative on the Brazil-Haiti Managing Committee, Carlos D’Oliveira, indicated that the shipment is being made at the request of the Haitian government and that the aid will make it possible to care for around 3,000 people. “It’s not useful to send a lot of medicine, due to logistical and storage issues. The ministry will be able to send further supplements as the Haitian government needs them,” he said at the Brasilia airbase. The World Health Organization (WHO) warned in the course of the day that the epidemic could intensify and Haiti should prepare for a “worse situation.” By Dialogo October 29, 2010last_img read more
