Sumary of PAHO: Latin America must keep prevention measures:
- With more than 11 million confirmed Covid-19 cases and 408,794 deaths, Latin America has been unable to successfully contain the coronavirus, in large part due to massive inequality and poor leadership..
- According to the Pan-American Health Organization (PAHO), countries of the region must continue prevention measures to avoid a new surge in deaths..
- PAHO Manager for Health Surveillance and Disease Prevention and Control, Dr. Marcos Espinal, said that despite the imminent second regional outbreak, the curve can be kept flat if local governments continue to endorse the importance of safety protocols….
Another six Latin American countries have death rates above 700 per million, which international health organizations consider as high levels. Those numbers only support PAHO’s calls to reinforce the importance of safety protocols.Support this coverage → Want to know more click here go to health news source.
