Reports state that the cholera outbreak, high crime levels, and an unstable government are the primary reasons that the US government is not recommending that its citizens visit the country of Haiti.
Haiti’s President, Michael Martelly, has been having difficulty implementing a new government. Lawmakers recently rejected his two nominations for prime minister and a third has not been selected yet.
Since last October, when the Cholera outbreak started, close to 6,000 people have died and more than 400,000 became ill.
Haitian officials believe that the recent U.S. government allegations about Haiti are blown out of proportion. They feel that the U.S. is trying to limit tourism and stop foreign investment initiatives.
