Health authorities in the Dominican Republic say they have recorded a drop in cholera cases in an outbreak that earlier this year led to the deportation of hundreds of Haitian migrants.
The government said in a statement Saturday that no deaths have been reported for more than three weeks, and that only 19 cases were reported this week. A total of 10 people have died and more than 400 sickened from cholera.
The Dominican Republic recently launched a campaign to educate people about cholera.
In neighboring Haiti, cholera has killed more than 4,500 people and sickened more than 234,000.
