NASSAU, BAHAMAS – The Pan American Health Organization cannot say when the COVID-19 pandemic is expected to end, due to the fluidity of possible scenarios over the near to short term, according to PAHO Director, Dr. Carissa Etienne.

 



Those changing factors also include how communities and countries adhere to public and social health measures.

Dr. Etienne made a presentation on the prolonged health crisis and its impact on health, the economy and social development, in a joint statement with the economic commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, or ECLAC.

This as PAHO and ECLAC are calling for the acceleration of vaccination against covid-19, with more widespread vaccination campaigns and dispelling misinformation.

Nearly two dozen countries in the region are expected to have 40-percent or more of their populations fully vaccinated against covid-19 by December 2021.

But based on October 8th vaccine stats, The Bahamas isn’t expected to be one of them.
