By Aaron Humes: The Pan American Health Organization reported that there were 7 million new infections of COVID-19 and over 34,000 deaths reported in the region since last week; but the Director Carissa Etienne reported that the rise in infections appears to be slowing down in places hit earliest by the Omicron variant.

Most new cases were reported in North America, but surges continue across Central and South America and deaths increased by nearly one-third in all sub-regions.

In the Caribbean, deaths have more than doubled in Cuba, the Bahamas, and Antigua and Barbuda and other islands, including Martinique and Guadeloupe are seeing the virus spread rapidly among young and unvaccinated populations.

“These trends show that we must continue to sustain every part of our COVID response,” Dr Etienne said. “Vaccinations, testing, and continuing public health measures like mask wearing and social distancing remain crucial.”
