As Renewed Haiti Cholera Crisis Looms, UN Blamed For Inadequate Effort | Fox News

“The situation is worse than it was two years ago, “ says Duncan McLean, a health program manager for Doctors Without Borders, a

voluntary organization that treated some 23,000 Haitians for cholera last year. “I’m very, very concerned about the state of cholera preparation in Haiti. The situation has become more dangerous than it was before.”

More than 656,000 people have been infected, and 8,090 died of water-borne cholera as of March 31, according to the Haitian health ministry, and according to McLean, who has visited Haiti numerous times since the emergency began, those totals are likely under-reported. via | Fox News
