Cholera deaths rise to 1,751

Haiti's cholera epidemic has killed at least 1,751 people since it emerged in mid-October, according to figures released by the health ministry yesterday.

A total of 77,208 people have been infected by the disease and 34,248 have been hospitalized since the outbreak, officials said.

The hardest-hit region, the Artibonite department north of the capital, Port-au-Prince, has seen 773 people die from cholera, while another 164 people have died from the disease in Port-au-Prince.

French cholera specialist Renaud Piarroux warned Monday that the disease could eventually infect up to 200,000 people.
