On 20 October 2020, Honduras had 96,150 positive cases of covid-19 and 2,661 deaths. The country’s population is 8 million. Today, 5 months later, the positive cases number 177,832 and deaths 4,196. The virus continues to live among us and will probably cling to the population for years. People become complacent, many do not use masks, others will snap at you if you ask them to maintain a safe distance. One cannot cure stupidity. Honduras last week announced the purchase of 5,000,000 doses of the Russian Sputnik 5 vaccine. The vaccine is one of the most effective worldwide. I hope to receive the vaccine as soon as it becomes available.
