In an interview with CNN, Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive said that:
"We have over 200,000 (dead). The last number I received from my services was 212,000 people that were collected on the streets and different places."
Bellerive also added that the number of homeless is probably much higher than the one million originally thought.  He stated that once those that were homeless prior to the earthquake are taken into account "you should have around two million people on the streets right now."
