Covid-19 deaths decreased 17 percent in the Americas over the past week, but the most populous countries like the United States, Brazil and Colombia are seeing a leveling of new infections after weeks of declining trends, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said on November 17.

Covid-19 deaths and infections declined across the Americas for an 8th consecutive week, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said on Nov. 3, warning that a very high percentage of hospitalized cases now are unvaccinated people.

Covid-19 is slowly retreating across most of North, Central and South America, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said on Oct. 27, reporting that last week the continent’s death and infection figures were the lowest in over a year.

The number of new Covid-19 infections dropped during the past month throughout the Americas, even though only 37 percent of the people in Latin America and the Caribbean are fully vaccinated, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) said on Oct. 6.

Cases of Covid-19 are declining in North America, but in most of Latin America and the Caribbean the end to the coronavirus pandemic “remains a distant future”, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) director Carissa Etienne said on June 30.

The White House laid out a plan to share 55 million U.S. Covid-19 vaccine doses globally, with roughly 75 percent of the doses allocated to Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia and Africa through the COVAX international vaccine-sharing program.
