    Covid-19: The epidemic continues to worsen in Haiti

    By Amingo Thora and Jean-Marc Pulvar 02/06/2021 - 15:17 Haiti

    Over the past ten days, more than forty people who tested positive for Covid-19 have died in hospitals while, since March 2020, less than 300 deaths have been officially attributed to the epidemic in Haiti.

    On May 24, following the detection of the Alpha and Gamma variants in the country (respectively identified for the first time in the United Kingdom in December 2020 and in Brazil in January 2021), the health authorities established a first state of emergency. eight-day health: curfew between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., reduction of staff in public and private institutions, compliance with the physical distancing measure (1.50 m), compulsory wearing of a mask in public places and closure classes, with the exception of those preparing for official exams.

    Unfortunately, this was not enough to stem the increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in the country.

    In a speech broadcast live on social networks, Haitian President Jovenel Moïse therefore announced yesterday, Tuesday June 02, the extension of the state of emergency by 15 days. And in a context where his legitimacy is contested by the political opposition and a large part of civil society, he took the opportunity to call for a national agreement:

    The coronavirus doesn't need to know which political party you are from, it doesn't need to know your skin color, your level of wealth, or your social background. The corona hits everyone.

    Officially confirmed cases of Covid-19 are over 14,000. More than 2,000 people are hospitalized and 292 have died from the virus. In fact, the establishments that welcome patients are saturated. This is the case with Saint Luc Hospital in Tabarre, in the Port au Prince region. UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund, has provided him with 10 oxygen concentrators to deal with the epidemic.
    The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) on Wednesday launched an appeal for an urgent strengthening of the fight against Covid-19 in Haiti. The country is one of the last in the world not to have yet started its vaccination campaign. He should receive 130,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine "by the end of June or early July", according to indications provided by the Minister of Health.
