The latest on the pandemic in Uruguay
12 January 2022 After six months of between 100-300 cases per day, Omicron arrived in late December. Since Christmas, cases have risen dramatically as we would expect. On Jan 12, there were almost 10,000 new cases. Fortunately just 54 cases in ICU in the entire country, due to covid.
Seventy-six per cent of the population has received two shots and 45% have had a third shot. Eighty-five percent of 12-19 years olds are also vaccinated and vaccinations are just coming available for 5-11 year olds. Travellers can also be vaccinated for free.
