Haiti’s cholera epidemic still an emergency


WASHINGTON D.C.: Haiti’s cholera epidemic is still an emergency and a let up in response based on the decreasing number of cases could have “tragic consequences,” a United Nations special envoy said on Wednesday. Between January and August of 2014, only 8,600 cases were recorded, in stark contrast with the 200,000 documented last year, said Pedro Medrano, the UN coordinator overseeing cholera response in Haiti, told Agence France-Presses in Washington.
