More organisations and donors must be mobilised, and essential tools, such as vaccination, must be made available to medical teams and to people in Haiti.
"Our current centres are filling up, and we will soon be at maximum capacity," says Mumuza Muhindo, MSF country director in Haiti, referring to the 389 beds that are often full in the six cholera treatment centres (CTCs) set up by MSF since the first cases appeared on September 29.
Since the end of October, MSF has treated an average of 270 patients a day in its centers, compared to about 50 a day in the first two weeks of the outbreak. In total MSF has admitted more than 8,500 patients and have recorded 97 deaths.
“The evolution is very worrying,” Muhindo said.
