Now we have two more days of cholera numbers, but MSPP has simply left out seven days between January 16 and 22, and given us numbers for January 23 and 24.
What's more, these two days omit reports from six Haitian departments: Grande Anse, Nippes, Nord Ouest, Nord Est, Ouest, and Port-au-Prince. Some of these departments haven't reported at all since sometime late in 2012.
For what it's worth, the numbers for January 23 and 24 show an increase in the cumulative total since January 15 of 3,446. Deaths have increased by 39, from 7,965 to 7,994. But these numbers represent only a fraction of the country, and for all we know they were pulled out of the air.
The collapse of the cholera reporting system is bad enough. It's even worse that MSPP, the media, and the NGOs including PAHO have said nothing about it.
