Despite having more than 51% of its population “fully” vaccinated, Peru’s death toll from COVID is now “the worst in the world, far higher than any of its neighbors and twice the rate of the United States,” reports NPR.
- 51.8% of Peru’s population is “fully vaccinated” against Covid-19, according to Google data.
- 65.7% have received at least one dose.
- And yet Peru’s death toll from Covid-19 is “now the worst in the world” and “far higher than any of its neighbors and twice the rate of the United States,” according to NPR.
- “In Peru COVID officially caused nearly 6,000 deaths for every 1 million Peruvians,” the report notes. “In neighboring Ecuador the mortality rate is just over 1,800 per million. In the U.S. the COVID death rate is roughly 2,400 per million.”
