As the rainy season starts, cholera infection rates skyrocket.
Tonight we have twenty-seven patients in the Cholera Treatment Center. There is an out break in Marazo, a mountain area southwest of Fond Parisien. At least five people have died there without making it down from the mountain. It takes from 3 to 5 hours hiking down the mountain and then another 45 minutes in the ambulance to get to our cholera treatment center from Marazo.
This is poster taped to the wall in the cholera treatment center, giving instructions in Creole about how to protect yourself from cholera.
