Haiti cholera epidemic at ‘600 cases a day’ – Health Minister
WASHINGTON (CMC) – As Haiti ends its first month into the rainy season, the country’s health minister has said the number of cholera patients has remained at about 600 cases a day.
Health Minister Florence Guillaume said the number of cholera patients in her country this year “has declined, but has remained at approximately 600 cases per day during the rainy season”.
The epidemic has come back strongly in the 2012 rainy season which began in June, despite a delayed immunisation drive.
