Via Thomson Reuters: FACTBOX - Haiti four years after the quake. This is a concise summary of the country's sorrows, including these:
• Haiti is home to half of the world’s suspected cholera cases. Since the start of the cholera outbreak in October 2010, the water-borne disease has killed nearly 8,500 Haitians and sickened 689,448 people.
• Despite a significant drop in the overall number of cholera-related deaths since the outbreak, cholera in Haiti remains an epidemic and a humanitarian crisis. If current trends continue, 45,000 people could be affected by cholera this year, OCHA estimates.
• In a bid to stamp out the cholera epidemic, international aid donors have pledged $2.2 billion over the next 10 years to improve sanitation, medical infrastructure and access to drinking water.
"Home" is not quite the word; "involuntary host" to half the world's suspected cholera cases would be more accurate, and it means the UN has effectively doubled the world's burden of cholera since 2010.
The case numbers given are slight undercounts of MSPP numbers for 2013, and 45,000 new cases is an optimistic projection, given the 59,663 cases in 2013. And if pledges were real money, Haiti would be the richest country in the Caribbean.
