cholera outbreak in Haiti
After losing lives and homes, the threat of a cholera outbreak caused further panic among the population in Haiti. 15 cases of cholera were reported in Port-au-Prince when riots began and lasted for days in Cap-Haitien. Five people were reported killed and the UN was asked by protestors to leave Haiti. Answering this, the United Nations stated that the riots were not because of the outbreak, but due to tension over the upcoming elections. They also denied claims that their personnel shot a number of protestors.
