The inequality in the numbers of vaccinations against the Corona virus refers to the countries of Latin America: while Chile has already started to implement third dose Of the vaccine against the disease in the elderly population, Haiti has completed immunization of only 341 people.
That was the number of single-dose Jansen vaccines that reached the poorest country in the Americas, according to Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). PAHO data indicate that Haiti has so far administered 14,000 doses to a population of 11.5 million people.
Among the 20 countries that make up Latin America, Uruguay has been the most vaccinated against COVID-19, with 143.3 doses per 100 people. Chile, 139.08 points; Dominican Republic with a score of 97.54 points; and Cuba with 97.13. data from Our world in data, something like Our World in Data, in Portuguese, is a project of the Global Change Data Lab, a non-profit organization based in the United Kingdom.
WHO explains that the amount corresponds to the total vaccine doses applied in each country. Since most vaccines require two doses to complete immunization against SARS-CoV-2, the total can exceed the population. In this analysis, Brazil appears ninth in Latin America, with 75.3 doses applied per 100 inhabitants.
In addition to Haiti, Nicaragua ranks last in vaccination in the region, with 13.88 doses per 100 population, and Honduras (28.33) and Paraguay, which applied 31.04 doses per 100 population.
In analyzing the percentage of the population fully vaccinated, Uruguay also leads, with 68.32%, followed by Chile (67.44%) and the Dominican Republic (40.83%). Brazil comes in eighth, with 22.66% of the population with a full vaccination schedule. Haiti failed to vaccinate up to 0.1% of its population, Guatemala 2.26% and Paraguay 4.02%.
When analyzed in absolute numbers, Brazil, with the largest population in Latin America, leads with 48.16 million people who have been fully immunized, followed by Mexico (28.38 million) and Colombia (13.4 million).
The latest bimonthly report on global health and health diplomacy by the Center for International Relations in Health (Cris), affiliated with the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Vucruz), indicates that the region has completed a vaccination plan in about 15% of its population, which accommodates an increase in the number of cases the disease.
In Costa Rica, where one in three people are vaccinated, the number of Covid-19 cases is declining. South American countries with the highest vaccination rates – such as Uruguay, Chile and Argentina – have reported very sharp declines in the number of cases. The same is true for Canada and most of the United States. The bulletin warns that US states with an increase in cases have the lowest vaccination rates, which indicates the importance of vaccines in controlling the spread of the virus.
Only in South America Location world standards It indicates a total of 36.17 million cases and 1.1 million deaths. Brazil accounts for more than half of these totals, with just under half of the region’s population.
In Central America, the Cris-Fiocruz bulletin reports an increase in the number of cases. “The increase in the number of Covid-19 cases is accelerating in most Central American countries, and large numbers of cases and hospitalizations are reported in Guatemala. In neighboring Honduras, there is an increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in states along the border,” the report says.
Data from Our World in Data shows that in Mexico, 86% of cases have been registered in the past two weeks. in Ecuador up to 40%; in Brazil 36%; And in Chile 4%. NS Location It does not have genome surveillance data from other Latin American countries.
