7:02 pm
a lot of focused on emphasis there on vaccination is the way out. absolutely yes and look as how to america and latin america as a whole has been one of the most effective regions by the pandemic. south america makes up for just 8 percent of the world's population, but it has accounted by may 2021 for over. a 3rd of all corona visor is related the bet globally just gives you an idea of just how bad things have been here. especially during the 1st year of the damage and we have reported extensively on what happened across this region with bodies left on the streets and whether lack of oxygen for patients in a number of countries. and just how difficult the rollout of the vaccination campaign has been at the beginning with countries here struggling to get enough vaccines. but that has changed throughout most of 2021. and you were saying now,
7:03 pm
this is the reason the most fascinated region in the world. overcoming europe with 63 percent of the population. why that, how that does, that happens if you ask me, ology, still give you a number of reasons, but they all points through 2. in particular. first of all, this is a region that has been accustomed in the past. the 2 large and expansive vaccination campaigns to defeat diseases like yellow fever's dose has been quite successful. and people remember that. so probably they were in a better mood to, to respond to their government recommendations. and in general, there are a smaller number of anti vaccines groups and people across latin america, even if, for example, as a big exception. the president of brookfield, you have both. tonight has been quite vocal against the vaccines,
7:04 pm
but if you look at what the people is dining in brazil, in big cities like nato and sell parlor, for example, practically 99 percent of all adults there have received at least one dose and more than 70 percent that the 2 doses and a lot of people have now received booster shots. so this is shows just how things have changed their crossed this region this year. so alexandro with that high rate of vaccinations that you've pointed out, is that giving authorities confidence when they faced some a chron how they reacting to that well, yes. and no. most governments are hoping not to go back to any sort of lockdown or restrictions because obviously this is a region that has suffered greatly from economic also from an economic point of view. the high vaccination rates, most country hopeful of that. but they are worried about the arrival of the on the
7:05 pm
crone via byron. we're a bit behind here when you compare it to the united states or europe, or the 1st cases are just now being defected in a, in most countries. so the expectation is that we will see the effects of only crone here in january, in particular, in the month of february. one issue here that worries a lot of governments is the fact that especially at the beginning of the rollout of the vaccination campaign, a lot of people ended up getting a job of a chinese vaccine that made by c. novak and there are doubts if that vaccine protects people as much as other competitors. so that's one issue that is obviously there. there's also the question, if the in the, the current there's a better job at dodge inc for examples anti bodies in people that have already been
7:06 pm
sick, or have been in contact with the virus in the fat in the, in the past, which is the case for the majority of the people in latin america. so those questions remains. there is obviously a worry in the effects that only cra a will have. and all governments here are looking quite closely to what's happening in europe or in the united states to see what the, what might happen, which is the case for the majority of the people in latin america. so those questions remains. there is obviously a worry in the effects that are only cra a will have, and all governments here are looking quite closely to what's happening in europe or in the united states to see what the, what might happen here in the coming months or thanks so much i'll resend that on p at you there. along like south america, crecia has a low vaccination rate even when compared with the rest of europe. while people
7:07 pm
have been turning out in the capital to make sure they now get their jobs. mclean is obviously which has the latest from zagreb, zagreb capital or 3, so people are waiting in line to get vaccinated, but most of them are ready to get for the booster dose. in general, crecia has one of the lowest oxidation rates in european union. only 55 percent of citizens are vaccinated. so creation government has a problem to convince the citizens that vaccine is safe and efficient. today. increase shaw only or wrong. 4000 confirmed cases of corporate 19 infection, but the only 8 confirm cases of all micro infection. 11 more suspected cases of all micron waiting to be confirmed. crecia was the 1st european country to bend all arrivals from south africa. country countries, gratian government. government also administered florentine for all creation
