The cholera epidemic in Haiti appears to have been contained for the time being, Haiti's Health Minister Marie Michele Rey said on Sunday, during a summit of French language nations in Switzerland.

The minister said that the outbreak of the deadly disease "is limited to a well defined perimeter" in the northern region of Artibonite and part of the central plateau.

For the time being "those who are on the spot appear to be able to contain the situation," she said during a press conference in the Swiss town of Montreux.
