Cholera outbreak in Haiti ‘stabilising’
"We have registered a diminishing in numbers of deaths and of hospitalised people in the most critical areas,"
- director general of Haiti's health department, Gabriel Thimote
Health officials have said there are signs that the cholera outbreak in central Haiti may be stabilising.
More than 250 people have died and more than 3,000 have been infected, but the rate of increase has slowed.
The UN and aid agencies are aiming to educate Haitians about how to prevent the spread of cholera, as well as setting up dedicated treatment centres.
