Across the Caribbean region, the picture is definitely a concerning one. Since the start of the pandemic, the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) reported that the region tallied more than 1.4 million cases and1.2 million recoveries. Almost eighteen thousand people have died and 15.2 million people have been vaccinated. However, among the twenty-six CARPHA members, there were only two hundred seventy-thousand cases, two-hundred thirty thousand recoveries and about five thousand seven hundred deaths. Among CARPHA countries, more than 2.1 million people have had at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. CARPHA warns however that the risk of further cases occurring remains very high and it urged countries to focus on interrupting viral transmission and reducing mortality related to the coronavirus. CARPHA notes that the highest seven-day-average number of cases to date in member countries was observed during the week that ended just this past Sunday, August twenty-two.
