International News: Haiti cholera outbreak worsens amidst humanitarian and economic crises

Posted: Thursday, November 17, 2022. 3:47 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The cholera outbreak in Haiti is worsening, with confirmed cases reaching over 700 and cholera-related deaths to 161, the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO) noted.

In addition, health officials are investigating about 7,000 suspected cases, the BBC reports.

The nation had been cholera-free until 2010 when an outbreak spread from leaking sewage pipes from a United Nations (UN) base housing Nepalese peacekeepers.

Almost 10,000 people died as a result of the outbreak. The UN later apologized for its failure to prevent the spread of the disease.

The UN has made a call for funding to provide clean water, hygiene, and sanitation to slow down its spread.

Data from the United Nations indicate that almost half of Haiti’s population is experiencing high levels of food insecurity amidst the increase in gang violence.
