The number of victims of cholera, which struck the island state of Haiti, amounts to 1,344 persons, United Nations reported on Tuesday.

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) stated that a total of 23,377 people were directed to hospitals due to infection, agency AP reports.

The spokeswoman for the United Nations, Elizabeth Beers said that the date are acquired from the Haitian government and that they cover the period between the cholera outbreak until November 19.

She told journalists in Geneva that Valerie Amos, the UN Under Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator is to pay a two day visit to Haiti on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Last week, the epidemics initiated local inhabitants’ protests, and some Haitians accused UN peace officers, who came from Nepal, that they brought cholera, which was denied by the World Health Organisation.

Disease spreading happened right before the presidential election in that state, planned for November 28.
