Posted On August 5, 2021
The coronavirus is spreading across the Caribbean island of Dominica and Puerto Rico after more than a week of deadly, sweltering temperatures, authorities said Tuesday.
Health officials are treating nearly 3,000 cases of coronaviruses in Puerto Rico and two other US territories.
A coronaviral pandemic began spreading across northern Mexico and Central America in early March.
The Mexican capital of Mexico City is experiencing a daily average of 15 to 20 cases.
In Dominica, the country’s capital, more than 2,000 people are reported to have contracted the virus, including one in a nursing home, officials said.
A man who was bitten by a dog is rushed to hospital.
He is in a critical condition.
Authorities have declared the outbreak an emergency.
Dominica is also experiencing the worst outbreak of coronas so far in the Caribbean region, with more than 4,000 deaths.
Officials said on Tuesday that the coronaviremia was now more widespread in the island than in the US.
The United States has seen a resurgence of cases, but the rate of new cases is dropping, officials have said.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said it is “unprecedented” for the number of cases to increase so rapidly in a single country.
The US is the first to have been hit by a pandemic.
It began in December, and the United States is still recovering from the pandemic, which was the deadliest since 1918.
More than 30,000 coronaviring cases were recorded in the United Kingdom, the European Union and the US, according to the UK government.
There have been 1,700 deaths in the region, officials say.
In the Dominican Republic, which has the world’s highest proportion of cases and deaths, the number has reached more than 400,000, officials reported.
In Puerto Rico there have been 2,900 confirmed cases, and 1,200 deaths, Puerto Rican President Maria Luisa Guzman said in a statement.
The country has also seen an increase in cases in the northern part of the Caribbean, with a total of 8,200 cases reported.
More cases in Florida have also been confirmed in the state, the governor’s office said.
There are currently 4.2 million cases in North America, with 1.5 million deaths, according the World Health Organization.
It is expected that the global number of coronascensias will rise by another 6,000 per day in the coming days, the WHO said.
About 50 countries have now declared a global emergency, and about 7.6 million cases of the coronasome virus have been recorded.
A number of countries in Central America have already been hit hard by the outbreak.
A report from the United Nations health agency in Guatemala, released Monday, said the country had lost nearly 20,000 health workers in the last 24 hours, a large number of whom had not been immunised against the virus.
