Haiti death toll soars

Haiti's cholera death toll has soared in recent days with 3333 people dead.

The official figures included a one-day record of just over 100 for the daily number of fatalities since the outbreak erupted in mid-October.

The total number of infections soared towards 150,000 in Haiti and authorities in neighbouring Dominican Republic said yesterday there have been 139 cases there, none of them fatal.
