The Miami Herald reported Saturday that new rules from the US Department of Health and Human Services have made medical flights from Haiti to the US much more difficult:
"One child died and the condition of critically ill children from Haiti's earthquake worsened amid stricter rules over medical flights to Miami hospitals and others in the United States, doctors and patients say."

Last week medical flights were stopped for five days after an apparent cost dispute between Florida and the Federal Government.
