Santo Domingo.- A total of 92 people have died because of cholera in the Dominican Republic, the Health Ministry reported Friday. The source said that over the past week five people have died from the disease.

According to the ministry, cholera symptoms were recorded by physicians in more than 670 new patients.

Since the beginning of the epidemic in November 2010, 14 thousand people have been hospitalized.

Cholera arrived in the Dominican Republic from Haiti, a neighboring state, where at the end of October last year there were nearly 400,000 cases. Over 6,000 Haitians died as a result of the epidemic.

No! it's not sad, it's the reality of being neighbors to Haiti. 500 years and no progress on the other side of the island, what can one expect?

What is sad is that a preventable disease is killing people. These people do not have to die.Our government could be doing more and could be preventing this by spending our government money properly instead of lining their own pockets.
