Health authorities in Haiti say a deadly cholera outbreak is beginning to stabilize.
A cholera outbreak that has killed more than 250 people in rural Haiti is stabilizing, health officials said Monday, as aid groups and the government race to prevent it from spreading to the capital's squalid camps of earthquake survivors.
"We greatly fear a flare-up in the capital, which would be serious, given the conditions in the camps," Dr. Claude Surena, president of the Haitian Medical Association, told Agence France-Presse.
If efforts to keep cholera out of the camps fail, "The worst case would be that we have hundreds of thousands of people getting sick at the same time," said Claude Surena, president of the Haiti Medical Association.
