Cholera cases are overwhelming Haiti and experts warn the situation could worsen now that the country is bustling once again after a paralyzing fuel blockade that lasted two months.
A rapidly spreading cholera outbreak is straining the resources of nonprofits and local hospitals in a country where fuel, water and other basic supplies are growing scarcer by the day.
The U.S. and Mexico say they are preparing a U.N. resolution that would authorize “an international assistance mission” to help improve security in crisis-wracked Haiti so desperately needed humanitarian aid can be delivered to millions in need.
Daily life in Haiti began to spin out of control last month just hours after Prime Minister Ariel Henry said fuel subsidies would be eliminated, causing prices to double.
Haiti’s government on Sunday announced that at least eight people have died from cholera, raising concerns about a potentially fast-spreading scenario and reviving memories of an epidemic that killed nearly 10,000 people a decade ago.
Not only have authorities failed to identify all those who masterminded and financed the killing, but Haiti has gone into a freefall as violence soars and the economy tumbles.
The remaining members of a U.S.-based missionary group who were kidnapped two months ago have been freed.
The explosion occurred late Monday in the coastal city of Cap-Haitien as survivors rushed outside and yelled as they observed how the fire consumed part of their neighborhood.
A religious group based in Ohio has announced that a violent gang in Haiti has released three more hostages, while another 12 remain abducted.
The U.S. government is urging U.S. citizens to leave Haiti because of the country's deepening insecurity and a severe lack of fuel. That shortage has affected hospitals, schools and banks.
