The regional Director of the health Foundation, said that after hurricane Matthew will be harder to detect new infections.

"Cholera never left Haiti. Been going on since the beginning of 2010, but they were manageable. With the arrival of hurricane Matthew, rose water ... and eventually contaminated water sources with human waste and excrement can lead to a new outbreak, "said Director of health.

The main priority is drinking water available for people in Haiti. "Regardless of the technology, the purified water must reach us that the population relied on bad sources. Antibiotics, ointments and medicines to treat open wounds also play an important role".

Medical Director for Haiti, Dr. Vince Degennaro, said were dozens of fatal cases of cholera in the South-Western part of the city of port-a-Pimenta. The who warns that the reconstruction of health facilities is also a priority. After the rainy season will reach Haiti in November, cases of cholera may increase.
