Cholera Outbreak in Haiti

Cholera Outbreak in Haiti

More than dead and thousands sickened -- what the world can expect from Haiti's first cholera epidemic in more than 50 years.

A half a century after Haiti's last cholera epidemic, the deadly disease is back, mostly in areas not affected by January 2010's deadly earthquake. With 250 dead and thousands sickened we look at what's being done to aid the sick, to contain the disease, and to prevent the spread into the island's capital, Port au Prince and its crowded refugee camps.
