Haiti - Health : The cholera epidemic is here to stay
The cholera epidemic in Haiti will last for years before being eradicated. This was announced in Washington on Monday an official of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the regional branch of the World Health Organization (WHO).

"From the time the cholera was firmly established in Haiti, it is clear to us, it will not disappear for several years [...] The rapid increase in the number of cases will decrease but there will probably new cases in the future, now that the bacteria moved into the environment," said Jon Andrus, assistant director of PAHO.

Health officials and aid organizations should "plan accordingly, mobilize resources and develop their capacity to respond to these senses to help the Haitians over the term"

The cholera epidemic in Haiti seemed to have stalled on Monday with a decrease in the number of new deaths, but the UN says fear a health crisis on a national nevel that would make tens of thousands of patients. The epidemic has led to 259 deaths and hospitalizations 3.342, said at a press conference the Director General of Department of Public Health, Gabriel Thimothé.
