Voodoo priests in Haiti are being lynched by mobs who blame them for spreading cholera, the country's government has said.
At least 45 people have been lynched in recent weeks as Haiti continues to be ravaged by a cholera epidemic.

Education. Governance. Corruption. Looks like the voodoo priests, spreading religious superstition, got killed by that same superstition. In the meantime people are dying from lack of sanitation, and contact with food and water contaminated by sick persons' fecal matter.

Transmission is primarily due to the fecal contamination of food and water due to poor sanitation.[3] This bacterium can, however, live naturally in aquatic environments.[4]
