By Aaron Humes: The resurgent COVID-19 pandemic continues to take no prisoners anywhere in the Americas, according to the Pan American Health Organization.
Reporting today, Director Dr. Carissa Etienne said that the United States and Canada continue to experience a surge in hospitalizations.
In South America, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina are also experiencing an increase in hospitalization, and a spike in infections in Colombia, Peru, Brazil, and Bolivia.
In Central America, cases have more than doubled in Panama, Costa Rica, and Honduras over the past week.
The Caribbean islands have also seen a sharp increase in infections, with cases doubling in more than 17 countries and territories.
Over 60 percent of people in Latin America and the Caribbean are now fully vaccinated against COVID.
“Vaccines shield us from the worst COVID symptoms and reduce our chances of needing hospitalized care,” the PAHO Director said, calling for those who have not yet been vaccinated to do so as soon as possible.
