Coronavirus begins spiralling out of control in Colombia's major cities


by Adriaan Alsema May 17, 2020

Colombia’s third largest city, Cali, and port city Cartagena rang the alarm as the country’s healthcare system appears to slowly be falling apart because of the coronavirus pandemic.

An explosive increase in confirmed infections in Colombia’s third largest economy, as well as in one of its major ports, follow the trend previously registered in remote cities like Leticia in the southeast and Tumaco in the southwest.

While healthcare is virtually non-existent in the smaller cities, this cannot be said about Cali and Cartagena.

The only coincidence is that healthcare in all these cities has been bled dry by corruption and mismanagement for years, while promised government aid to bolster healthcare never arrived in the hospitals and with the medical personnel.

You don't say. That sounds very familiar. Hmmm.
