We’re learning more about conditions in this ‘shithole’ country

(HEADLINE HEALTH) When Donald Trump allegedly said that too many immigrants are coming from ‘shithole countries’, one of the nations to take greatest offense was South Africa. The nation’s UN representatives called Trump a racist and demanded international sanctions against him. 

Now we’re learning more about actual conditions in South Africa. Are these facts enough to qualify the nation as a ‘shithole’? You decide:

  • 67 South Africans have just died in a listeriosis outbreak, the deadliest in the recorded history of the world.
  • Tuberculosis causes 8.8 percent of all deaths in South Africa; HIV/AIDS causes 5.1 percent.
  • Malaria is endemic in several provinces
  • Gastroenteritis, cholera, viral hepatitis, typhoid fever, bilharziasis and dysentery are all listed as diseases that pose a high risk to South Africans. SOURCE: Food Safety News
