haiti-death-tollsHaiti Death Tolls:Though Alex Larsen the Haiti Health Minister estimated death tolls may reach 50,000 to 100,000. The other latest updates suggest something else; around 200,000 people are feared dead. Just have a look at the picture here and feel the pain and agony the poor nation is going through right now.

The earthquake that hit the island between Wednesday and Tuesday marked their minds with unforgettable memories for the residents out there and their anger is turning into sheer violence. The process of international help and aid seems to be painfully slow and the picture above leaves a message for the modern world that still they’ve got to do a lot.

During his Friday press conference Alex Larsen was hopeful that loss of lives may not exceed 100,000 but unfortunately, this seems to be an optimistic statement since hundreds of thousands of people still remain unaccounted for. Each day, there are extremely gloomy pictures coming from the calamity hit area showing the dead bodies piled up in the barren streets of Port-au-Prince, the city capital.

Larson further added that at least 1.5 million or more of the residents of small island of Haiti have gone homeless and are forced to live without even basic necessities of life such as shelter, food and medical assistance. Port-au-Prince city sport centers, Larson stated would accommodate the injured ones to provide them with whatever medical assistance available with limited sources.

If the reports have to be believed, nearly 70 percent of main Haiti buildings in Port-au-Prince alone have been removed from the scene forever following massive shocks. The list included the Presidential Palace, lots of school buildings, hospitals and many of the government office buildings. Though in his recent remarks about Haiti disaster, Obama declared the island has the Temporary Protected Status, plenty of financial, medical and other almost all types of other assistance is what the poor Caribbean nation requires right now.
