    Uruguay starts vaccination campaign on Monday counting 600 deaths due to Covid-19

    The country will “finish the vaccination process much faster than others that started the process 20 days earlier,” Secretary of the Presidency said.

    Without a great media hype, the first 192,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines from the Chinese laboratory Sinovac arrived in Montevideo in the early hours of Friday morning. However, a police operation was deployed throughout the day to begin distributing the vaccines, which will begin to be administered on Monday, March 1, to a small group of essential workers in different parts of the capital and the interior of the country.
