Supplies Getting Through Better In Haiti But The New Fear Is Of Disease

An infrastructure is now in place in Haiti to better facilitate the flow of food and water to the people in need. But doctors are now concerned about the spread of disease.

More than 50 orphans were taken by air to Pittsburgh today by the governor of Pennsylvania. They were residents of a Haitian orphanage run by two Pittsburgh sisters. They will be temporarily placed in foster care after they are evaluated and treated at the city's Children's Hospital.

A UN spokesman says that the reports of looting are a bit inflated. He says the looting is not widespread and notes that looting was a common occurrence in Haiti before the earthquake.
