D.R. President Leonel Fernandez and his Haitian counterpart, Rene Prevalweb, plan to meet Tuesday at the Presidential Palace in Santo Domingo to discuss measures for tackling the cholera outbreaks.

Four more cholera cases have been reported in the Dominican Republic, raising the total number of cases to 32 since mid-November, according to the Public Health Ministry.

The new cases are in the northern province of Santiago and in two provinces that border Haiti.

More than 2,000 people have died from cholera in Haiti, and more than 90,000 others have been infected.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control continue to advise traveler caution when visiting the D.R., but neither the CDC nor the U.S. State Department issued any travel warning.
