Another person died on January 12, bringing the new total to 7,960. Your guess is as good as mine as to what caused the change in numbers.
All told, MSPP now tallies 639,574 persons with cholera since the outbreak began. In these three days, 430 persons contracted cholera, although as many as 5 departments including Port-au-Prince did not report. Since January 1, Haiti has recorded 2,436 cholera cases and 19 deaths. As always, we should consider these numbers an undercount, and maybe a large one.
