On December 3rd, MSPP reported 91,770 hospital visits for cholera, 43,243 of which were admitted, and 2,071 fatalities as of that day. These retrospective statistics continue to represent gross underestimates of the true caseload and fatalities seen in Haiti thus far.
o The greatest discrepancies in reporting are observed in the difficult to reach mountainous, rural areas.
Increased cholera activity is expected following the anticipated passage of Tropical Depression Tomas across Haiti from Friday to Saturday. Implications for the transmission of other infectious disease and risk to responders are discussed in this WARNING.
Tomas has decreased to a Tropical Depression as of this morning.
