Zika Could Be Widespread Across Haiti, Specialist Warns
NPR: Doctors Fear Zika Is A Sleeping Giant In Haiti
“…Haiti has all of the ingredients for widespread transmission of Zika. … Yet as of August, Haiti had confirmed only five cases to the World Health Organization. … [Louise] Ivers, from Partners in Health, a global health organization based in Boston, says she’s quite anxious that Zika is spreading widely across Haiti — but it’s not being detected. … On top of that, she’s worried that Haiti’s severely limited health system, which isn’t picking up Zika cases, is also ill-equipped to deal with a wave of children with severe birth defects…” (Beaubien, 8/30).
