Cholera Outbreak In Haiti Could Happen Again

CNN: Why Haiti’s deadly cholera epidemic ‘could strike again’
“… Even before the [January 2010 seven-point magnitude earthquake], Haiti’s water systems were fragile, and just months after the quake the country was hit with a devastating cholera outbreak — the first in nearly a century. By the time the outbreak subsided, more than 8,000 people had died and hundreds of thousands more had become sick. … Today, Haiti’s Mirebalais University Hospital is training new doctors for another cholera outbreak…” (Jean-Francois, 4/23).
