Despite days trapped under rubble in searing heat, rescue teams are still pulling people out alive from beneath the concrete of Port-au-Prince.
An Israeli relief team managed to bring out a 22-year-old man suffering from dehydration.
Earlier an 84-year-old woman was saved from certain death after being retrieved from a wrecked building.
The doctor who treated her said she had wounds all over her body and was barely alive, but she has since been stabilised.
However, things are ever so slightly returning to normal and rebuilding work is already underway in the shattered capital.
Some supermarkets and shops are opening for business and banks have started operating again, allowing Haitians access to cash for the first time since the disaster.
According to Haitian authorities 111,000 people are now known to have been killed in the earthquake with 190,000 injured.
The number of homeless stands at 1.5 million.
It is expected that the number of dead will reach 200,000.
