LAST night the Ministry of Health confirmed its first case of cholera. It said that although it continues to investigate, “there are no other reported cases of cholera in the Bahamas.”

The Ministry said that it “continues its heightened surveillance activities and other necessary precautions to identify cases and prevent the transmission of cholera in the Bahamas.”

It advised the public to use clean water, wash their hands regularly and otherwise maintain good hygienic practices to prevent cholera from developing and spreading.

The Ministry reported that a patient was evaluated at the Princess Margaret Hospital on October 18 “due to symptoms of vomiting and a large volume of diarrhea.”

The Ministry of Health’s statement said that “the patient appeared unwell on arrival, was treated for suspected cholera, and has since recovered. Laboratory tests were able to confirm cholera today, October 29.”

The Ministry said that there are increased rates of cholera in countries around the world.

It assured the public that it will “continue to keep the public informed of all matters affecting public health.”

If a company wants to become proficient with international transactions, then it needs to explore all of the financing options that are available. The speed at which you can interact internationally is also of vital importance. There are a number of trade financing products used by companies transacting internationally. customer service representative resume

The healthcare system knows about the cholera transmission occurs primarily by drinking water or eating food that has been contaminated by the feces of an infected person, including one with no apparent symptoms.

At the nursing education you learn about cholera and his symptoms: the severity of the diarrhea and vomiting can lead to rapid dehydration and electrolyte imbalance, and death in some cases.

We don't need pretty words. Any signs of Cholera can be an economic tourism killer for Bahamaland.The Ministry of Health should not be so quickly dismissing this case by saying that there are increased rates of cholera in countries around the world. Those countries where large Cholera outbreaks have been seen in recent years are places like Haiti, Zimbabwe and Viet Nam. Each day the government refuses to send in the bulldozers to these disgusting shantytowns brings us one day closer to a Bahamaland style Cholera outbreak. Why would this surprise anyone, when the protection of the natives public health has been postponed, while both the gold/red shirts play the get the votes to support their politics. Any jackass in the cabinet must realize that not in this century should we be allowing shantytowns to exist as communities, with their lack of sewerage treatment and clean drinking water. Wake up Bahamaland. So what if they want to call you a racists for standing up for your Bahamaland's public health and economics. You know why cabinet ministers do what they do, cause they think the natives will allow them to get away with it. They need ask Hubert why his regime was fired in 2012? PM Christie nip this Cholera thing in the damn butt, before it craps all over Bahamaland's tourism. There is NO option 3.

To the North of Main Beach is The Spit, located between the Gold Coast Broadwater and the Ocean. The Spit is home to the famous Sea World, Palazzo Versace Hotel and Marina Mirage shopping and dining complex. They have the best Australian wine!
