The people of Haiti face a new terror, just days after Hurricane Matthew blasted the Caribbean nation: cholera.
“Everyone is talking about this,” says The World’s Amy Bracken, in Dame Marie, in southwestern Haiti. “Aid workers, doctors, random people I’m talking to on the streets, have been talking about this. They’re terrified.”
Cholera is a deadly water-borne disease, and it’s already taking lives in Haiti.
“They’re terrified of cholera getting worse around here,” Bracken says. “They’re terrified of people getting it and not being able to be taken to a clinic.”
