Update from BNO News, Mon., Oct. 25
“At least 250 people have died in Haiti and around 3,000 others are sick after having been infected with cholera as aid workers are struggling to contain what appears to be a widespread epidemic, local media reported on Monday. Most of the victims are from the rural areas of the Bas Artibonite region and in Saint Marc, located north of the Haitian capital Port-Au-Prince. Five cases were discovered in Port-au-Prince this weekend, which has caused concern that the disease could be spreading. The cases discovered in the capital were people who had traveled from the infected central region to the city. Officials believe the disease has not spread in the capital, but fears continue that the disease will spread sooner or later.”
