Haiti Cholera Death Toll Tops 2,000

More than 2,000 people have died from Haiti’s cholera outbreak and almost 90,000 cases have been recorded, the latest health ministry figures show.

More than six weeks after Haiti’s first cholera outbreak in more than a century erupted in late October, data showed deaths continue to climb at a steady rate.

There is no apparent tailing off in the number of infections.

A total of 2,013 people have died from the water-borne bacterial infection and 88,789 cases have been recorded, according to the official figures.

United Nations experts have warned the actual toll could be far higher.
