COVID-19: A Second Wave

The second wave of COVID is hitting Haiti much harder than the first wave. The head of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), said infections are rising all through the Americas but that “Haiti’s situation stands out”.

COVID variants from Brazil and the UK are now in the country and contagion is much higher than the first wave of COVID, yet COVID vaccines have yet to arrive in Haiti.

Gasping for air, patients in Haiti infected with the coronavirus are dying in ambulances after being unable to find a hospital to admit them. – Miami Herald

There are only 200-240 COVID beds in Haiti with a population of 11.5 million people. GHESKIO will reopen its two COVID centers which will provide over 100 additional beds for COVID patients.
