The Haiti cholera outbreak is an ongoing cholera outbreak that began in late October 2010 in the rural Artibonite Department of Haiti, about 100 kilometres north of the capital, Port-au-Prince, killing 3,333 people and hospitalising thousands more. The outbreak followed a powerful earthquake which devastated the country on 12 January 2010. By late January 2011 some 4,131 people have died and 117,312 are hospitalised. By the first 10 weeks of the epidemic, cholera spread to all of Haiti's 10 departments or provinces. In November 2010, the first cases of cholera were reported in the Dominican Republic and a single case in Florida, United States; in January 2011 a few cases were reported in Venezuela
