          In parts of Latin America, water shortages undermine battle with coronavirus

          PORT-AU-PRINCE/HAVANA (Reuters) - Every day, Fontus Pierre Raymond wakes up at the crack of dawn to get in line to fill buckets of water at the communal tap in his densely-packed Port-au-Prince shantytown so that his mother and seven younger siblings can wash before work and school.
          Less than a quarter of households have basic handwashing facilities with water and soap, according to data compiled by the United Nations.

          “Since they announced the pandemic (in Haiti two weeks ago), the tap has had water twice,” said Mimose Pierre Raymond, 44, Fontus’ mother. “But we can spend weeks without water.”

          Haiti has only confirmed 18 cases to date, but experts fear the COVID-19 respiratory disease caused by the virus would be more deadly there than other countries if it took hold given the widespread malnutrition and its overburdened healthcare system.
          "The only security we have is our ability to adapt."
