First an Earthquake, Now This

 

 

via BBC News – First cases of cholera detected in Haiti’s capital.

With 2,674 cases of the disease reported, health officials have been trying to contain the outbreak in Artibonite and Central Plateau.

They said they had stepped up disease prevention measures and surveillance at the tent camps, and sent medical teams north to treat those infected so they did not travel to the capital to seek help.

Ms Wall said officials were also identifying sites in Port-au-Prince for tent clinics, where patients could be treated away from other people.
