Third wave of COVID-19 takes hold in most regions of Americas

Posted: Thursday, August 12, 2021. 8:08 am CST.

By Aaron Humes: Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Director Dr. Carissa Etienne has addressed the pandemic’s continuing toll on the Americas, where more than 1.3 million COVID-19 cases and more than 19,000 deaths were reported over the past week.

Cases and deaths continue to rise in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. In Central America, cases are decreasing in Panama and Costa Rica but increasing in Honduras, Belize, and El Salvador.

In the Caribbean, cases are rising in Cuba, Jamaica, Puerto Rico, Martinique, the Bahamas, and Dominica. “Over the past month, infections increased 30-fold in Martinique and there has been a significant spike in hospitalizations,” Dr. Etienne said at a press briefing Wednesday.

In South America, the news is better, she continued. Cases and deaths are declining in the Andean region and Brazil and across the Southern Cone. This includes substantial decreases in cases in Colombia, Bolivia, Paraguay, and Uruguay.
