Cholera outbreaks have killed at least 13 people in southwest Haiti in the wake of Hurricane Matthew, government officials told Reuters on Saturday, voicing concern that the disease was spreading.
Six people died of Cholera in a hospital in the southern town of Randel, while another seven died in the western coastal town of Anse-d´Ainault, the officials said, likely as flood waters mixed with sewage.
The disease surfaces amid massive flooding and homelessness in the wake of Hurricane Matthew.
