    A quarter of the world’s coronavirus deaths have been in Latin America. A third of new infections are happening in the region – a region where just three percent of the population is fully vaccinated.

    In some countries people blame their governments – for making the wrong moves, or making them too late. Poverty, too, is playing its part, making social distancing impossible. Healthcare systems are overwhelmed and economies are shrinking.

    So what hope is there for Latin America?
