RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The threat of a third wave of covid-19 continues to grow in Latin America, which, with limited resources and marked inequality, is struggling to expand its vaccination plans while increasing restrictions to curb a virus that has left nearly 25 million infected and 777,000 deaths in the region.
"The death toll remains high, with more than 34,000 deaths recorded last week (March 22-29). Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Paraguay have reported the highest rates," warned Wednesday, the director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), Carissa F. Etienne, in her weekly assessment.
