In the above article it speaks of 150,000 already buried in individual and mass graves. It also speaks of 200,000 to 300,000 buried alive in the rubble and now considered dead.

If this is true that means that it is likely that 350,000 to 450,000 people are already dead directly and indirectly from this Earthquake. This means more people died in Haiti than died in the 2004 Tsunami in Indonesia, Ceylon, India, and Thailand which is considered to have been around 250,000.

To make this comparison is the only way to make any sense of just how horrific this problem has been. Therefore, it is likely that another 100,000 people or more are likely to die from injuries both external and internal and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder between now and 6 months to a year from now. With the infrastructure gone and government for all intents and purposes still gone this will remain a United Nations disaster area for years to come.
