Pestilence Update

Cholera outbreak in transboundary zone – Dominican Republic/Haiti

Blog note: And great earthquakes shall be in diverse places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. (Luke 21:11). Jesus is giving a series of prophecies about what to look for as the age of grace comes to a close. This verse from Luke is one of many such prophecies from throughout the Bible. 2017 was the worst year in recorded history for the intensity, frequency, severity, duration and occurrence of a large number of severe natural disasters worldwide. Earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, typhoons, cyclones, torrential flooding, unprecedented wildfires in unusual places, devastating droughts, excessive/scorching heat setting records everywhere, record snowfalls in Europe and Russia. Snow in the Arabia. This list can go on. Most studied eschatologists believe these ‘fearful sights’ and massive natural disasters are all part of the ‘CONVERGENCE’ of signs that this Biblical and prophetic age is closing. Most people who study prophecy are familiar with the routine reference(s) made that these things will be like a woman having labor pains that occur in greater severity, frequency, size and duration prior to giving birth. End of note.

Cholera outbreak in transboundary zone – Dominican Republic/Haiti TW. 9/30/2018.

The Haitian and Dominican health authorities completed a joint mission in response to the cholera outbreak in the Cornillon/Independencia border zone. They have resolved to develop planned interventions to cope with the epidemic, and to strengthen institutions and health networks along the border.

The Haitian Ministry of Public Health reported 3,062 suspected cases of cholera between January 1 and September 1 in Haiti, of which 42% tested positive.

Following a request for assistance from local health authorities in the Dominican Republic, the IFRC has developed a response plan targeting 7,500 people, which DG ECHO is supporting through its Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF).
