The World Health Organization (WHO) warned on Friday that Cholera outbreaks have increased after years of steady decline.
In the first nine months of this year, 26 countries in Africa and Asia have reported cholera outbreaks. According to WHO, the cholera outbreaks are larger and more deadly.
Major ongoing outbreaks are being reported from Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia and Nigeria, according to the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control ( ECDC ).
An estimated 39,857 suspected cholera cases and 114 deaths have been reported worldwide since August 24, 2022.

Haiti’s government announced that at least eight people have died from cholera, raising concerns about a potentially fast-spreading scenario and reviving memories of an epidemic that killed nearly 10,000 people a decade ago. https://t.co/JRn2L0eUSG — Yahoo News (@YahooNews) October 3, 2022 Malawi has reported 3446 Cholera cases as of September 27, 2022. #Malawi has reported 3446 Cholera cases as of 27 September 2022. @WHOMalawi rapidly responding to the #cholera outbreak by supporting in surveillance, treatment, sensitizing communities on prevention and treatment of #Cholera as well as hygiene, sanitation & water purification. pic.twitter.com/0ngtgGT2a4 — WHOMalawi (@WHOMalawi) September 28, 2022 “After years of declining numbers, we are seeing a worrying upsurge of cholera outbreaks around the globe over the past year,” Philippe Barboza , the WHO’s team lead on cholera and epidemic […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
