Haiti's cholera epidemic still emergency: UN envoy

10/9/2014 - 04:39 GMT

Haiti's cholera epidemic is still an emergency and a let up in response based on the decreasing number of cases could have "tragic consequences," a UN special envoy said Wednesday.

"I fear that the enormous progress we have made leads people to believe that the problem has been resolved. It is not resolved," Pedro Medrano, the UN coordinator overseeing cholera response in Haiti, told AFP in Washington.

Between January and August of 2014, only 8,600 cases were recorded, in stark contrast with the 200,000 documented last year, Medrano said.

L'épidémie de choléra en Haïti reste une "urgence" (coordinateur de l'ONU)

08/10/2014 - 22:21 GMT

L'épidémie de choléra en Haïti reste une "urgence" et croire que ce problème est résolu pourrait avoir des conséquences "tragiques", a averti mercredi le coordinateur de l'ONU, alors que les Nations unies sont accusées d'avoir réintroduit le virus dans le pays.

"Je crains que les progrès énormes que nous avons accomplis laissent penser que le problème est résolu. Il n'est pas résolu. Penser qu'il l'est est non seulement une erreur, mais cela peut aussi avoir des conséquences tragiques", a indiqué à l'AFP à Washington Pedro Medrano.
