Over 1,000 COVID-19 cases in Haiti

Posted: Tuesday, May 26, 2020. 10:59 am CST.

By BBN Staff: Haiti has become the first Caribbean Community (CARICOM) nation to register 1,000 positive cases of COVID-19.

As of today, the country has 1,063 case of the virus.

A report from Worldometer notes that the country has registered 31 deaths due to COVID-19.

The first case of the virus was detected on March 19 and the numbers have been increasing.

On May 25, the country registered 93 new cases and 1 death due to COVID-19.

Today, Haiti reported 105 new cases and 4 more deaths.

Earlier this month, the director of the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO), Dr. Carrissa Etienne expressed concern at the rate of infection in Haiti, warning of an “impending humanitarian crisis”.

Etienne also said that there are few beds for treating COVID-19, insufficient numbers of health professionals and insufficient personal protective equipment in Haiti.

Etienne noted that most Haitians do not have access to clean water and sanitation, and “many live in overcrowded households where quarantine and isolation are challenging.”

“There is a real risk that growing good insecurity will result in famine. Civil unrest, a difficult political situation and precarious security may further complicate the situation,” she said.
