Cholera in Haiti
The cholera outbreak, with 259 deaths and more than 3,300 confirmed cases counted as of Monday morning, has so far been contained to the region around the epicenter — the central rural areas around the Artibonite River in Haiti.

Treatment centers are being established, soap and water purification tablets being distributed and public safety announcements stressing hygiene. (Source: Deborah Sontag in The New York Times)
