Many thanks to Lucie Lecomte for sending the link to this report from MetropoleHaiti.com, a source I didn't know about: More than 2000 cases of zika already identified in Haiti. The edited Google translation:
Zika virus is gaining ground in Haiti; the Ministry identified 2,984 cases in public health throughout the country, according to a report covering the period of February to 13 August.
According to Dr. Jean Frantz Lemoine, who is coordinator of malaria, Zika and filariasis programs with MSPP, the West department is the most affected with 1,045 cases, followed by North with 583 cases.
"The virus peaked in early 2016 with 305 cases during the 7th week," said Mr. Lemoine.
Today the trend is downward; only 15 cases were reported for week 32, says the coordinator of vector-borne diseases.
Pregnant women remain the most vulnerable to the virus because of the consequences that the infection may have on their babies. Today, the Department has confirmed a case of microcephaly linked to Zika.
However other suspected cases are identified, according to Dr. Frantz Jean Lemoine.
Meanwhile, the MSPP continues its fumigation campaign but invites citizens to take steps to prevent the proliferation of mosquitoes responsible for transmitting the Zika virus.
