Haiti: 7,565 cholera deaths as of October 4

MSPP has posted cholera statistics for October 1-4 on its Documentation page. In those four days, 749 new daily cases were reported, but the total-cases number rose by 765, to 598,742. Nine deaths were reported, but the total-deaths number rose by ten, to 7,565. As always, I assume the discrepancies are due to late reports being silently folded into the totals.

Curiously, the daily case numbers dropped from 229 on October 1 to just 115 on October 4. Hospitalizations also dropped, from 160 to 78. I have no idea why.
