"Uruguay and Paraguay achieve near-total victory over coronavirus"
"Uruguay has recorded the lowest number of Covid-19 cases and deaths per capita in South America, if not the entire western hemisphere. The small but progressive country has done that despite sitting right next door to Brazil – which has the world's second-highest number of Covid-19 infections and fatalities behind the US."
"Until now in Uruguay, Covid-19 has been very much under control. Evidence-based policies, a strong public health care system, and scientific innovations are believed to be the main factors of success. Uruguayan evidence-based policies consider several inputs, including scientific, medical-epidemiological, economic, and educational aspects."
"For most of the past year, Uruguay was held up as an example for keeping the coronavirus from spreading widely as neighboring countries grappled with soaring death tolls."Uruguay's good fortune has run out. In the last week, the small South American nation's Covid-19 death rate per capita was the highest in the world."
