On March 13, the cumulative total of cholera cases was 650,218. On March 24 the total was 651,339, an increase of 1,121 or just about 100 cases a day for the latest period. But the daily total was 819, with no day's cases higher than March 14 (110) and most in the 60s or 70s.
During this period, MSPP reported just 2 deaths, on March 22 and 24. But on March 14, when it reported 0 daily deaths, it reported the cumulative deaths as 8,051—3 more than the 8,048 reported on March 13.
Aggravating matters, the department of Grande Anse reported not a single time during these 11 days. Nippes department fell silent on March 21, and Nord Est department dropped out on March 22. So we have a substantial part of the country simply failing to report cases.
In Cuba, the government clamps down on the malcontents trying to get the news out about cholera; in Haiti, no one cares. Nor, it seems, does anyone in the Haitian or foreign media. The NGOs mention cholera numbers only when they're trying to raise money from their doubtless fatigued donors. The UN and WHO maintain dead silence about the sheer unreliability of Haiti's cholera statistics.
And on Good Friday. If the crucifixion of Christ had received similar coverage, today's Christians would all be Zoroastrians or Mithrans or Druids.
Well, as the late, great Kurt Vonnegut observed in the face of irremediable harm: So it goes.
