Haiti: Dealing with the Pandemic

Haiti: Dealing with the Pandemic

Empowering Haiti during the pandemic in 2021. But how?

As the pandemic rages on and COVID-19 spreads across the world, the citizens of Haiti have faced grim realities. In February 2021 alone, there have been 11,692 COVID-19 cases in Haiti. Countless Haitians have died as a result of the pandemic. However, many suffered milder symptoms than the rest of the world. 

Why? 

Because a majority of the population is young and healthy. 

Without access to healthcare, Haitians aren’t able to seek preventative care. When they develop chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease or high blood pressure, Haitians develop complications and do not survive the disease, especially if they live in less populated areas.

Although the COVID-19 symptoms in Haiti appear to be milder than in other countries, it’s still important to keep precautionary measures in place.

Through HHH, we promote the following to prevent the pandemic from spreading into the community:

  • Use masks
    • Wearing a facial mask protects everyone by preventing respiratory droplets from infecting others.
    • All those over the age of 2 should wear masks in public, and around those who are not from the same household.
  • Practice hand hygiene
    • Wash your hands!
    • It’s important to wash your hands for 20 seconds with soap to prevent spreading germs and viruses from one person to another.
  • Maintain a social distance of 6 feet and limit social gatherings
    • The virus spreads through close contact over a prolonged period of time.
    • It spreads easily through respiratory droplets that come out during sneezing, coughing and talking.
