Cooper, Gupta Return to Haiti

ac_2-8.jpgCNN’s Anderson Cooper and Dr. Sanjay Gupta are returning to Haiti after a week back in the United States. The decision was made over the weekend. Cooper will again report for “AC360″ from Port-au-Prince this week, something he did for roughly two and a half weeks following the devastating earthquake.

Late Sunday, both Gupta and Cooper announced on twitter that they were heading down that night. Cooper said he would be flying to the Dominican Republican an then crossing over into Haiti.

Gupta tweeted Saturday, “think it’s time to go back to haiti. can’t forget what is happening there. must maintain dedicated focus. convincing my wife to let me go.”

During initial coverage of the earthquake, Cooper reflected on air, “People are just going to lose interest in this as a story, they’re going to stop watching,” to which Gupta replied, “In part, it’s up to you and up to us to make sure they don’t forget.”
