Emerg Infect Dis. 2011;17[11] [published online ahead of print October 12, 2011]).

Between October 2010 and April 2011, 275 000 cases of cholera and 4700 deaths were reported on the island of Hispaniola. Most of the cases and deaths occurred in Haiti, which was still reeling from the aftermath of a serious earthquake.
