Thousands rush for vaccines in Jamaica

In Jamaica – Hundreds of Jamaicans turned up at COVID-19 vaccination sites across the country on Monday, placing strain on the health authorities’ ability to efficiently administer the vaccines and resulting in people being diverted from one vaccination facility, after it reached capacity.
Long lines and extended waiting times marked the day as the health and wellness ministry reported 739 new cases of the novel coronavirus and six additional virus-related deaths, pushing the total number of confirmed cases in the country to 67,402 since the first case was reported last year March. Of that number 17,288 are active.
The death toll now stands at 1,510 and the number of people who have recovered stands at 48,186.
