Haiti: Less Than 1.5% ‘Full’ Vax Rate—Zero New COVID Cases

Only 31,704 confirmed cases of COVID since the start of the pandemic.

QUICK FACTS:
  • The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that only 837 people have died of coronavirus in the nation of Haiti since the pandemic began.
  • The nation is only 1.4% “fully” vaccinated against coronavirus out of its 11.6 million population, making it one of the least vaccinated countries on the planet.
  • Haiti showed zero new coronavirus infections as of Thursday, compared to 124,621 new cases in the U.S.—whose population is 79% vaccinated (67.5% “fully”)—on the same day.
  • One tracking metric showed that there were only about 2 COVID-19 infections per 100k people in the island nation.
  • Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Haiti are the least vaccinated countries in the world against COVID.
  • Countries with low vaccination rates also having low COVID infection rates while countries with high vaccination rates have high COVID infection rates raises questions about the vaccine’s efficacy and legitimacy.
MORE DATA FROM THE WHO:
  • “In Haiti, from 3 January 2020 to 5:03 pm CEST, 7 July 2022, there have been 31,703 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 837 deaths, reported to WHO. As of 24 June 2022, a total of 342,724 vaccine doses have been administered,” according to the data from WHO.
  • The nation of Haiti has administered at least 342,724 doses of COVID vaccines so far, meaning that if every person needs 2 doses to be fully vaccinated, that makes about 1.5% of the population fully vaccinated.
  • The nation’s infection rate is currently at 18% of its peak percentage of cases.
BACKGROUND:
  • Currently, Haiti is only beat out for lower vaccination rates by the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi.
  • Just 0.05% of Burundi’s population have received at least one dose of COVID vaccinations, and 0.4% of people in DR Congo have been vaccinated at all.
  • Other African countries with low vaccination rates include Chad, Madagascar, and Tanzania, whose immunization rates range from 1.5% to 4%.
