As access and information to cut-off areas of Haiti increase after the hurricane, the news only gets worse.The death toll has climbed to nearly 900 people, while an outbreak of cholera in three southern towns has killed 13 people and infected 62 others, health officials said.For now, though, there is no way to know the precise toll of the storm.There are still 500,000 people stranded in the south alone, officials said, because of extensive damage to an already feeble infrastructure.More than 170 people have been reported dead in Les Anglais, which for now is accessible only by helicopter.Just as the impoverished island nation, bereft of resources and capacity, struggled to prepare for the storm, the recovery has been hampered by the same shortcomings. And communications have been scattered.Although news outlets are reporting nearly 900 dead, the government has for two days insisted on a figure less than half of that.
