Summary Nearly 8,000 people have died horrible, painful deaths since a cholera epidemic swept through Haiti after a major earthquake in 2010. Over half a million others have been infected, and containment is nowhere in sight with dozens dying each week. A growing body of scientific evidence shows that United Nations peacekeepers brought the disease into the country.
