By Zoila Palma: On Sunday, Venezuelan President, Nicolas Maduro said that Venezuela has made a second payment to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVAX initiative to access around 11 million COVID-19 vaccines.

The country is experiencing a second wave of COVID-19 and continues to strain the health system.

Last week, the Venezuelan Government said that it made an initial $64 million payment to COVAX for the first batch of vaccines, after complaining that U.S. economic sanctions aimed at ousting Maduro were blocking the payment.

To date, the country has received 800,000 doses of Russian and Chinese vaccines for its population of around 30 million.

Deaths associated with COVID-19 in Venezuela are at 1,800.
