Haiti Cholera Death Toll Passes 900

(CNN) The death toll from Haiti's month-old cholera outbreak continues to grow.

According to statistics released by the Haitian Ministry of Health Sunday morning, 917 people have died from the bacterial infection, while there have been some 14,642 hospitalizations.

More ominous is the spread of cholera through the squalid camps that still house hundreds of thousands of people in the Haitian capital 10 months after a killer earthquake shattered the city.

"In Port-au-Prince alone they give a total deaths of 27 and 607 hospitalizations," said Christian Lindmeier, a spokesman for the World Health Organization.
