georgina schools to despise the tick sense. it's true. ah. hello, i'm here. i'm home and health authorities in latin america a battling a rise in current of virus infections. the region already has the highest covered 19 death rate in the world. brazil has suffered the most fatalities in the region with more than half a 1000000 death, followed by mexico wherever 230000 people have died, and peru has reported nearly 200000 deaths. he w 's your hand, ramirez reports from lima, where the new lambda variant is pushing the public health care system. the to breaking point in peru. people are placing their hopes for carving depends m each on vaccination. yet progress is slow on the some 15 percent offer organs have
6:02 am
received at least one those one of their worst rates in latin america. but for house work or not the ground, it's better than nothing. most people have been looking through. we feel optimistic because people react while to vaccination in parole. in fact, the younger people would like everything to go faster so they can get to vaccinate it soon from a notice. although commerce has reopened, after a 9 month quarantine, strict safety measures remain in place. authorities cough mandated using job phase mass to enters tours and shopping centers. phase shells are widely used and hand washing facilities had been installed in the streets, but it has not been enough to cross the highest per capita death rate in the world . the government's response to the crisis has been widely criticized. the implement
6:03 am
gave those this arrived too late for the paper. on the management of the pandemic is a complete disgrace, especially for the previous president. one now at least the pfizer vaccine. the last 2 peaks of infection seen through have coincided with the political crisis. that's in both cases left to massive demonstrations. the 1st one was in november when political instability led to 3 precedents in one week. the 2nd wave of fraud. this is happening right now. the reason a controversial presidential election, one of the candidates cried fraud. why the other claims there is a plan to still has victory. supporters from both sides have taken to the streets, according to some experts these demonstrations could cause a 4th arise in the section car. but at this point, the concert cannot afford new locked down the great this effort mass to be done to
6:04 am
vaccinate the population. and to start negotiating from now on new generation vaccines for the new vargas that may appear. this is the most effective measure, and we have been slowing doing so much. on average, peru administers about 350000 vaccines every week. a low figure for a country of more than $33000000.00 authorities have promised that the process will accelerate the government forecast. estimates that the eligible population will be immunized by the end of 2021. a floor and this is bringing up your hand. ramirez who filed with tax report. he is currently in columbus capital over town. now you had your report. pains quite a grim picture. how is peruse health care system holding up to have a system offer was going through a very difficult time because in addition to the very worrying figure stuff,
6:05 am
no infections. and the arrival of norse trains in the country who is going through a major political crisis that has led thousands of people to take to the streets in protest. and so we have new cases increase in no variance horizon in the country and massive demonstrations. that's, it's a cocktail very favor conditions for a new wave of infection sense. we have to understand this in the context of a country which even before the pandemic had a house, a very we tough a system. so in conclusion, the forecast for, for barrow is not very bright. and in your report, you did speak to many people who blame political instability for the current situation in peru. so we're starting from the part promises to speed up the vaccination drive. what else is the government doing to keep these numbers down? the government doesn't have many options because as i said, per is going through
6:06 am
a huge political price. the reason is that today marks a one month since the presidential election was held on the we still don't know who won this election. that's why thousands of people have been taken to this traits. so for the government right now, the, this political crisis is a priority. the funding is not the main issue because there are even people talking about the cost. so this is a very serious, so imposing a new lock down right now doesn't seem very likely because protests are, wouldn't accept, and then the economy cannot afford no lockdown. so that's why hopes are placed on vaccination. united states donated to 1000000 doses to the country, but neither will allow you to accelerate the vaccination process. but last, the weekend, the council received for oxygen plants donated by friends shows that even in hopes are placed on vaccination. the country is preparing for even worse scenario. and

hugely from publicly funded research, it manages to steer health care expenditure towards its most expensive medication. no good idea goes forward without a pharmaceutical company partner. and yet the current pricing is absolutely indefensible. in my opinion. the pharmaceutical industries, main concern is now profit that concerned the shareholders not patient. it's not. it's very cruel business. because if you can't pay for you, don't get the, the battle against the covered $19.00 pandemic has further wet pharma companies. appetite has the pharmaceutical industry, thirst for profit become a threat to our public health systems. ah ah
