COVID-19 COMMUNITY EFFORT IN HAITI
As of Jun 7, 3334 cases of Covid-19 and 51 deaths have been confirmed in Haiti; and the number of suspected cases are increasing hour by hour. This number is an underestimate. In Haiti we are not able to test those who are in need. And COVID-19 related deaths may occur without a person reaching hospital, so many will not be counted. Preventing the spread of the virus is more essential than ever: extreme poverty, poor sanitary conditions and the inability of the majority of the population to isolate themselves make the prospect of a major epidemic particularly alarming.
