Cholera Death Reported in Dominican Republic
Via the BBC: Dominican Republic confirms first cholera death
Health officials said the victim was a 53-year-old Haitian who was being treated in the eastern town of Higuey.
Almost 4,000 people have died of cholera in Haiti and close to 200,000 have been infected since the epidemic broke out in October.
The Dominican Republic tightened its border controls and health checks to try to stop cholera from spreading from Haiti soon after the first cases were reported.
