With the lowest levels of access to drinking water and sanitation in the Americas, Haiti is struggling to stamp out cholera, which resurged between October and December last year, said the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).
During the first two months of this year, cholera cases totaled 7,225, including 86 deaths – higher than recorded during the same period in 2012 and 2014, said PAHO, the regional arm of the World Health Organization.
“We cannot be complacent. We can’t take our eyes off the ball,” PAHO deputy director Isabella Danel told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a telephone interview. via | Fox News
