In this regard, the Haitian government has asked citizens to take measures to prevent the spread of the virus, including washing hands, drinking clean water and defecating in modern toilets.

In the event that any individual presents symptoms compatible with the disease, the Ministry insists that one should go to the nearest health center to treat the disease.
