Cholera is surging in Haiti after Hurricane Matthew fouled wells, flooded rivers and latrines and forced survivors to drink contaminated storm water even in regions that have received some deliveries of emergency aid.

.

Less than two weeks after the earthquake, at least 200 suspected new cases of cholera have been detected in the country, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), which is sending 1m cholera vaccines to Haiti at the end of this week.

.

Aid agencies fear that without a major effort by the international community, survivors of the storm will face a fresh outbreak of the disease.

.

There will be many more cases of cholera, and unnecessary deaths, all across areas affected by the hurricane if large-scale cholera treatment and prevention response doesnt reach them immediately, said Conor Shapiro, president and CEO of the St Boniface Haiti Foundation, which operates a hospital in the southern part of Haiti.

.

Hurricane Matthew killed at least 473 people, and 752 people are missing, according to the United Nations latest tally.

.

And if access to food, water and shelter does not improve immediately, the death toll is expected to increase. In its wake, the hurricane left pools of stagnant water, overflowing rivers and dead bodies  creating a breeding ground for the waterborne disease.

.

In the worst-hit regions, efforts to deliver water treatment equipment have been hampered by debris that still blocks roads. And even those places that have received support have reported huge shortages of clean drinking water, forcing people to drink stormwater, said Beatrice Lindstrom, staff attorney at the Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH). Its a race against time, she said.

.

Lindstroms group has led a campaign to hold the UN accountable for its role in the cholera outbreak that hit nine months after the January 2010 earthquake. The disease was previously unknown in Haiti, and overwhelming evidence suggests that it was introduced to the country by UN peacekeepers from Nepal.

.

More than 9,200 people have since died from cholera and more than 769,000 have been treated in hospitals for the disease  and Lindstrom said that the hurricane has prompted fears of a fresh epidemic.
