It's been nearly a week now since the first cholera cases were detected in a rural area north of Port-au-Prince, and in the days following a major public information and prevention campaign has been launched.
I fear this will become a major disaster. Haitians have no natural immunity to cholera. The incubation period of up to five days lets seemingly healthy but actually infected people travel and spread the disease. This could involve the entire country. I'm praying for a miracle.
