Haiti – FLASH: On the eve of the reopening of the airport, surprising figures
The Ministry of Public Health informs that 70 new cases of Covid-19 have been confirmed in Haiti (last report: +55), for a total of 5,847 cases throughout the national territory (40.7% women and 59.3% dmen) since the first case (March 19, 2020 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-30319-haiti-health-origin-of-the-first-2-cases-of-covid-19-in-haiti .html).
Deaths: 3 new deaths in the Dept. Northeast and 1 in the Dept. De Grand'Anse, bringing the national total to 104.
Healings: 787 people (+78), the day before (+68)
Active cases: ( less death and recovery) 4.956 (-12), the day before (-15)
Number of suspected cases investigated since March 19: 11.993 cases (+251 in 24 hours), the day before: (+236)
Based on the figures, we find that the number of Covid-19 cases has dropped sharply since President Moïse announced the reopening of the airport on June 21. Simple coincidence or the need to present internationally and to future passengers a positive image of a controlled situation in Haiti?
In addition, there are statements from committee members that the peak has passed and that the epidemic is heading towards the end ….
Note that this June 29, on the eve of the reopening of the airport, the official health authorities (excluding the 68 cases of the West Department) announce that only [1 9459016] 2 cases of Covid-19 have been reported in 24 hours in total in the 9 other departments! .
Does this number reflect the health reality or the political reality? We leave it to you to judge.
All the details by department and commune, plus diaspora: USA, Quebec, Dominican Republic, France, Caribbean and Latin America, in our daily report of 11:00 am
