UN: Cholera cases in Haiti’s capital are a ‘worrying development’

“The confirmation of five cholera cases in Haiti’s capital is a ‘very worrying development,’ a U.N. spokeswoman told CNN.

Public health officials are working to keep the country’s cholera outbreak from spreading in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, where tens of thousands of people are still living in sprawling tent cities after January’s devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake.

The fast-moving outbreak has claimed at least 253 lives on the impoverished island nation, and another 3,015 cases have been reported, according to Haiti’s health ministry.”
