Headline: Crisis in Latin America, COVID vaccines, Christmas mask … Wednesday’s news
Latin America and the Caribbean will end 2020 with a 7.7% drop in GDP and an unemployment rate of 10.7% in the worst crisis in 120 years, according to the latest ECLAC report. All countries participating in the international COVAX mechanism will receive vaccines at the same time, whether they pay for them or receive them free of charge. The WHO considers that there is a “high risk” of a third wave of COVID-19 in Europe and therefore asks the population to wear a mask at family gatherings during Christmas.
