Russia warns citizens about travelling to the C'bean -

JamaicaObserver.com: "MOSCOW, Russia – Russia’s chief sanitary doctor warned Russians this morning against travelling to Caribbean countries because of the growing cholera epidemic in Haiti.
Gennady Onishchenko called on Russians to avoid travelling to the neighbouring Dominican Republic since “the situation in Haiti is worsening”.
“It is possible to live in the heart of a cholera outbreak following precautions, but a vacation is not a case to take such risks,” he said in a statement here.
At least 700 people have died since the outbreak of cholera almost a year after the devastating January 12 earthquake that killed an estimated 300,000 people and left 1.3 million homeless in the French-speaking Caribbean country.
