Latin America Is Losing The Battle Against COVID-19

Latin America has seen an explosive spread of the coronavirus, with no end in sight.

According to CNN, roughly half of all new COVID-19 cases originate in Latin America as a whole.

However, individual Latin American countries are faring differently.

Uruguay has a strong public health system and coherent pandemic control policies.

But in Mexico, Colombia and Peru, workers' income has probably declined by 80% during the pandemic.

That's put even basic health care out of reach.
