Port-au-Prince, Haiti (CNN) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was in Haiti on Sunday, urging the U.S government and other Americans to do more to help the earthquake-ravaged country.
“Not to get political, but if some of the politicians would come here and see the conditions perhaps they would see the need for, say, a military airlift to bring the supplies that are so needed here,” she said.
Palin spoke at a brief press conference at a warehouse owned by the Samaritan’s Purse organization north of Port-au-Prince.
“(I) don’t want Americans to forget the need that is here,” she said. “More importantly, for Americans and people across the world to know what an individual can do to make a difference, to contribute, to kind of get out of your comfort zone and volunteer to help.”

Atlanta, Georgia (CNN) — The cholera epidemic already blamed for more than 1,100 deaths in Haiti could worsen because of poor sanitation in the earthquake-ravaged country, U.S. medical researchers reported Thursday.
A lack of treated drinking water, coupled with poor hand hygiene and food-preparation practices, make the 1.3 million people still living in camps particularly vulnerable, according to a new study published by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“The course of the cholera outbreak in Haiti is difficult to predict,” the report states. “The Haitian population has no pre-existing immunity to cholera, and environmental conditions in Haiti are favorable for its continued spread.”
