Cholera Continues To Sicken Thousands, Kill Dozens Each Month In Haiti, AP Reports

Associated Press: Cholera quietly still kills dozens a month in Haiti
“…Cholera, which arrived in Haiti in October 2010, has sickened more than 770,000 people, or about seven percent of the population, and killed more than 9,200. So far this year, it has sickened more than 6,000 and is killing an average of 37 people a month. The persistence of the preventable disease has alarmed public health experts who fear that attention and resources have been diverted by newer challenges, including the regional spread of the Zika virus and the political crisis that recently halted Haiti’s elections…” (McFadden, 3/3).
