Cholera spreads closer to Port-au-Prince

Full blown cholera crisis could hit capital which is home to 1,300 displaced persons camps.

The latest figures from Haiti show a cholera outbreak has now claimed nearly 200 lives, with another 2,300 people reported to be sick.

So far the outbreak is concentrated around Saint Marc, north of the capital.

However, Al Jazeera has found evidence the disease is spreading closer to Port-au-Prince.
