For the first 34 weeks of 2016, a total of 27,839 cholera cases were reported in three countries of the Americas: the Dominican Republic (1,039), Ecuador (For isolated cases of cholera), and Haiti (26,799), which alone accounts for 96% of all cholera cases reported in the Region of the Americas up to EW 33 of 2016.

In the Dominican Republic, a total of 1,039 suspected cholera cases, including 18 related deaths (case fatality rate: 1.7%), were reported for the first 32 weeks of 2016.
