Covid-19 in Latin America: April 2021 Update
Canning House welcomes a panel of speakers for a further renewed update on the Covid-19 pandemic’s impact on Latin America’s health, economy and politics.
Throughout 2020, the capacity of governments around the world to respond to crises has been tested. 2021 has offered little respite, with new Covid-19 mutations and continuing high rates of infection, necessitating the implementation of stricter restrictions to protect public health.
However, the year arrived with a new hope – a number of vaccines against Covid-19 have gained widespread approval, and mass vaccination programmes have begun across Latin America. This in itself presents new challenges - and indeed opportunities - for supply and distribution, as well as a starting point for economic and social revival.
Canning House welcomes a panel of experts for an update on the pandemic’s impact on the region’s public health and economies, and on the strategies adopted by governments for vaccinations and recovery.
