Haiti has recorded 32 confirmed cholera cases with 224 suspected cases.

This according to the Department of Epidemiology, Laboratories and Research of the Ministry of Public Health.

It said that the number of suspected cases hospitalized has increased by 40 per cent since October 6th, when 135 cases were recorded.

The data also shows that there have been 16 deaths to date, up from five cases reported on October 6th.

The authorities have also indicated that the figures do not represent the situation in the entire French-speaking CARICOM country due to travel difficulties and insecurity, given that there are areas controlled by gangs.
