Haiti children ‘fatal disease risk’

“Cold, damp conditions in Haiti in the wake of Hurricane Tomas have left thousands of children at risk of catching potentially fatal diseases, Save the Children has warned.

The UK-based charity said children could be exposed to malaria, diarrhoea, dengue fever and pneumonia, as well as skin infections.

There are also concerns the huge volume of moving water, which is likely to wash sewage and rubbish around the town, will facilitate the spread of cholera.”
