    A cholera outbreak in Haiti that has already killed more than 200 people in the countryside has now made it to Port-au-Prince, the country's capital.

    More than one million people living in makeshift camps are at risk, with much of Port-au-Prince still in ruins following January's huge earthquake.

    Al Jazeera's correspondent Sebastian Walker met one woman who is waiting to hear if she has the disease.
