Haiti capital braced for cholera

While the cholera outbreak that has so far killed 259 in Haiti is starting to taper off, the capital Port-au-Prince is bracing itself for the disease's arrival. Can treatment reach people in time to prevent more deaths?

Emergency supplies of clean water, soap and water-purifying equipment contained the initial outbreak ā€“ the gut bacterium spreads via water contaminated with faeces. But poor sanitation in the capital's refugee camps leaves the 1.3 million left homeless after January's massive earthquakes highly vulnerable to disease.

Clean water supplies prevented cholera after several recent disasters. The watery diarrhoea caused by the gut infection can kill by dehydration within hours. But antibiotics will cure cholera, or sick people can be treated with clean water, salt and sugar.
