Haiti Hit by Cholera Outbreak
2,634 people have been hospitalised in the central Artibonite and Central Plateau regions by the illness, which causes diarrhoea, acute fever, vomiting and severe dehydration.
There are fears the outbreak could reach camps housing the survivors of January's quake in Port-au-Prince.
I say it's not unexpected, because when people exist in the conditions that many have had to endure since the start of the rainy season in Haiti then it's really only a matter of time.
