Haitian Cholera Outbreak Claims More Lives

Ad Feedback

The cholera outbreak in Haiti continues to claim more victims. The disease has now killed more than 1,000 people.

More than 14,600 people have been hospitalized, and health care workers believe those numbers are low.

Hospitals are overcrowded as doctors and nurses struggle to stem the rapid spread of the disease.

Cholera is caused by contaminated water and can kill its victims quickly through dehydration. Most Haitians do not have access to clean water or sanitation.

CBN News Reporter Efrem Graham recently returned from Haiti. He discussed the health conditions he saw in the island country and the efforts to fight the cholera outbreak on CBN News Channel Morning News, Nov. 15. Click play to watch.
