Low COVID-19 Cases in Haiti Raises Questions

With the global hysteria surrounding the coronavirus, it’s refreshing to find countries that may be recovering from it, particularly those with an African population.

The following information comes from Loop Haiti.

Compared to other Caribbean regions, Haiti has relatively low COVID-19 cases, with many questioning how. The case numbers were questioned during the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) media conference.

PAHO Deputy Director Dr. Sylvain advised the following:

“Today Haiti has been mildly affected compared to some of the other countries in the region. But the collateral effects (on) the socioeconomic (and) health and nutrition have been considerable.”

“The reason for the lower incidence of detected COVID is not completely clear.”

Haiti is listed on The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s highest COVID-19 Travel Health Advisory list, level 4. However, statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO) show a decline in cases, from 284 to 60 daily cases.

    I noticed that the number of Black Americans increased as they gathered together during these kneel-downs and sit-ins. Over the last few months, I have observed the same group of homeless and destitute outside the bodega, and not one has contracted it.
