Since the cholera outbreak began in October 2010, months after the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, 776,633 cases and 9,163 deaths have been recorded.
And this cumulative number may be lowballing it, according to a recent study in the journal, Emerging Infectious Diseases, which reveals from house-to-house surveys in four communities that there were an estimated nearly three times more cholera deaths in the first six months of the epidemic than officially recorded.
Prior to Oct. 2010, Haiti had not seen a cholera outbreak in a century.
In neighboring Dominican Republic, 894 cholera cases and 17 deaths have been reported this year to date.
