Cholera spread, important announcement of the United Nations

Port Oprans: The cholera epidemic in the African country of Haiti took hold.

According to media reports, the United Nations has confirmed increasing cases of cholera in Haiti’s capital.

United Nations officials warned last week that the cholera epidemic in Haiti would not be limited to just a few areas, but had a strong chance of reaching the capital, Port-au-Prince.

About 1.2 million doses of oral vaccine to fight the cholera epidemic in Haiti have arrived in Port-au-Prince, a UN spokesman said.

The vaccination campaign is expected to begin on Sunday, said Stephen Dojak, chief spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, citing the Pan American Health Organization.

He said that the vaccine will first be given to the people of the remote areas of Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, as well as the commune of Mirabalais in the north.

He said that the number of suspected cases in Haiti increased by 10 percent over the past week, adding that Port-au-Prince is the most affected area, but unfortunately, confirmed cases are increasing elsewhere.

Cholera is spread through dirty water and is directly related to poor hygiene. Cholera can be fatal if not treated on time.
