Haiti still recorded over 1,100 UN caused cholera cases a week in 2013

Since the outbreak of cholera began in Haiti in October 2010, months after the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit the Caribbean country, amazingly, Haiti is still recording over 1,100 cholera cases per week, according to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

In their latest Epidemiological Update on Cholera, the health agency reports, “In 2013, there has been an average of 1,120 cholera cases and 9 deaths per week.

Over 1,000 cases a week three years after the outbreak began seems astounding; however, it’s not to one of the authors of the Yale University report, “Peacekeeping Without Accountability” released earlier this year.
