Colombia reports more than 100,000 deaths from COVID-19 on Monday

 Colombia reported more than 100,000 deaths from COVID-19 yesterday. The country's health ministry said, amid warnings of potential scarcity of treatment drugs and oxygen in hospitals during a long and brutal third peak of infections and deaths.

 

The country of 50 million people has reported more than 3.9 million cases of Coronavirus infections, as well as 100,582 deaths.

 

Colombia has seen record numbers of Coronavirus infections and deaths in recent weeks, with some medical officials warning certain medical supplies are running low.

 

 

 

 Intensive care units (ICUs) in major cities are operating at near full capacity, according to information published by local health authorities in capital Bogota, as well as in Medellin and Cali, Colombia's second-largest and third-largest cities respectively.

 

The country hit a record of 30,000 daily reported cases earlier this month, while Monday saw a new high of 648 daily deaths.

 

Colombia has administered over 14.9 million vaccine doses, of which more than 4.7 million are second doses. The country hopes to vaccinate some 35 million people - 70 per cent of its population - this year.
