Honduras, the only one in Central America that maintains a risk score

Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

The country risk rating agencies have evaluated the behavior of the Central American economies. Standard and Poor’s, Moody’s Investors Service and Fitch Ratings have given the ratings to each country.

Of the five Central American countries, only Honduras has managed to maintain the rating.
Standard and Poor’s maintains the note at B1 with a stable outlook and Moody’s at BB- with a stable outlook, according to a report by Central American Monetary Council (CMC).

The agencies expect that the impact of the covid-19 pandemic and the global recession will cause an economic contraction of the country in 2020 and higher fiscal deficits.

LEA: Initiative proposed to give tax relief to productive sectors

However, the CMC document maintains that they hope that the shock will not affect the external credit profile in a structural way, insofar as they foresee that its effect will be temporary and thus the economy will recover next year.

Lastly, the stable outlook shows the opinion that the recovery of activity, the Government’s efforts to consolidate fiscal matters and its access to various sources of financing will limit the potential deterioration in public finances and external liquidity.

The Central Bank of Honduras (BCH) in the review of the Monetary Program last July indicated that the economy would contract between -7% and -8%.

The CMC analysis highlights that among the positive factors, solid external indicators stand out despite the adverse shock of the pandemic, favorable debt composition, with a concentration of its external debt supported by multilateral institutions and a gradual improvement in its internal debt profile. .

In addition, the adoption of prudent and cautious measures, with a view to keeping the debt burden stable in the medium term, and in order to strengthen governance and improve the business environment, as well as structural reforms that continue to strengthen the fiscal and economic resilience.

Rest of the countries. For Costa Rica, The rating of long-term and foreign currency debt was lowered from B + to B by Fitch Ratings and S&P, due to factors associated with fiscal sustainability, in a scenario of lower economic growth due to the coronavirus crisis.

However, Moody’s maintained the B2 rating. All agencies assigned a negative outlook due to the country’s increased financing needs to cope with the effects of the pandemic and fiscal shocks.

According to CMC quarterly report for June 2020, Fitch Ratings and S&P Global maintained the rating of El Salvador’s long-term foreign currency sovereign debt. However, Fitch Ratings changed the outlook from stable to negative, leaving the rating at B-.

Regarding Guatemala, in the second quarter of this year, Moody’s and S&P Global Ratings confirmed the rating and outlook assigned to long-term sovereign debt in foreign currency; however, Fitch Ratings downgraded its rating from BB to BB-, changing its outlook from negative to stable.

Overcrowding forces to mix patients with infected

A group of doctors from Hospital Roosevelt, the first in importance in Guatemala, denounced this Wednesday that the overcrowding caused by the care of patients with COVID-19 has led to the mixture of patients without coronavirus and infected.

The doctor Miguel Ángel Siguantay, one of the spokesmen for the doctors, assured in a press conference that “in the areas to attend to emergencies of non-COVID-19 patients, they are being treated together with patients infected due to lack of spaces, due to overcrowding, and it is difficult for us to maintain distancing because the population continues to come. “

The doctor stressed that “positive patients continue to appear where there should not be positive patients”, a problem that causes “the mortality of surgical patients with COVID-19 to rise to 24 or 25 percent and that is disastrous for our population.”

The overcrowding and collapse of the hospital is similar to that suffered by other health centers in the Central American country, especially in Guatemala City, as the hospital directors had already endorsed on July 15.

Siguantay said that since March they have attended a total of 18,984 medical, surgical and orthopedic emergencies, and have operated on 1,253 patients.

“These data are important to express that the population will continue to come with or without COVID-19,” he said.

To the crisis derived from the excess of patients it is added that 347 doctors and health personnel have tested positive for the coronavirus, so “21 percent of the support population and doctors are outside (of work) and it is a workforce that we do not currently have, so we have great weakness for a hospital of this magnitude.”

Of the 347 hospital staff who contracted the disease, “all of their contacts have been quarantined and the hospital is more weakened in terms of its staff.”

They ask for the presence of the minister

The doctors demanded the presence in the hospital of the Minister of Public Health and Social Assistance, Amelia Flores, within 48 hours, “so that you have a better visualization of the situation you are experiencing.”

Otherwise, Siguanay emphasized, “we are going to have continuous meetings to take other types of measures. We ask the minister to come. She is a few blocks (streets) away. It would be good if she personally realized what the quality and quantity are of work that is taking place in the hospital center. “

Asked about the requirement of doctors, the director of Social Communication of the Ministry of Public Health, Julia Barrera, said that “The Minister of Health expresses her full support for Roosevelt Hospital through the director of that healthcare center”, Dr. Marco Antonio Barrientos.

Guatemala has 1,573 deaths from the virus and 41,135 cases accumulated since the authorities detected the first positive on March 13.

Honduras, with the most complicated panorama in Central America

TEGUCIGALPA, HONDURAS.- Covid-19 attacked Central America almost simultaneously and within two months of its arrival the results of the pandemic in Honduras they are the most discouraging on record in the region.

The country has the highest case fatality rate, reaching 7.3 percent. It is the second in the region where the most positive cases have been reported and the fifth in the number of tests carried out. Honduras has the fourth place in recovered from Covid-19 and the second in active cases. THE HERALD made a comparison of the impact of the Covid-19 between Honduras and the countries of the region to establish an overview according to the result.

Honduras in the region

It has been 57 days with the Covid-19 in Honduras, 1,270 people have been infected and 93 never saw the sunlight again, for a sad fatality of 7.3 percent. The second place is occupied by Panama with 2.74 percent, product of 203 deaths and 7,387 cases counted.

Always with low lethality, Guatemala is in third place with 2.6 percent and El Salvador in fourth with 2.2 percent.

PLUS: Chronology of the coronavirus in Honduras: the point of no return has been reached

So far the country that has best managed fatality is Costa Rica with 0.8 percent, as a result of 755 cases and just six people dead.

For now, Nicaragua and Belize cannot measure the fatality of Covid-19, since they only report 15 and 18 cases, respectively, and to make the calculation they must reach at least 100.

An important factor to measure the impact of a disease in the region is the number of tests that are carried out and the calculation must be made based on a rate of 100,000 inhabitants, and in that category the country is deferred.

So far in Central America, the country that performs the most tests to detect coronavirus is Panama with a total of 35,556 for a rate of 8,241 tests per 100,000 inhabitants.

The second place is for El Salvador, which -according to figures revealed by its health system- has carried out 30,387 tests for a rate of 4,685 per 100,000 inhabitants.

On that line Costa Rica So far it has applied 14,121 Covid-19 tests and its rate has been 2,772 per 100,000 inhabitants. Guatemala has a rate of 402 tests for every 100,000 inhabitants as a result of 7,200 tests carried out, while 5,653 tests have been carried out in the country for a rate of 568 tests for every 100,000 inhabitants.

Belize is the country that has performed the least tests with 1,043, while the Nicaraguan authorities do not provide details of their work.

Recovered

A health system cannot be measured without the number of recoveries that have been reported.

In this section Panama has the advantage with 726 people who beat the Covid-19, followed by Costa Rica with 413 and El Salvador with 201 cases.

Honduras appears in fourth place with 122 recovered, Guatemala has 79 and Belize 18.

For its part, Nicaragua, despite not reporting the number of tests for Covid-19 that it has carried out, does show that seven of its compatriots have expired the virus.

Adding the recovered and dead there is a special space for active cases, people who recover at home or are hospitalized for a mild, intermediate, serious situation or in the intensive care room. In this sense, the country with the most active cases is Panama with the scandalous figure of 6,458 people, followed by Honduras with 973, Costa Rica with 366, El Salvador with 201, Guatemala with 79, Nicaragua seven and Belize has just two.

In total, in Central America there are currently more than 8,200 active cases of the virus.

Honduras internally

57 days have passed after the entry of the Covid-19
to Honduras.

A total of 93 Hondurans killed, 1,270 infected and a case fatality rate of 7.3 percent is a cover letter that causes nightmares in the population.

The departments of Islas de la Bahía and Gracias a Dios barely remain to present positive cases.

In the latter, the mayor of Puerto Lempira, José Saición, told THE HERALD that until now they had not received any test to diagnose coronavirus and as it is a new disease, the raw logic that they do not even know the test.

A higher contagion range among people from 40 to 69 and a marked case fatality between 70 to 79 years denotes the vulnerability of those who are older.

In detail, 36 children between 0 to 9 years old, 58 from 10 to 19 years old, 248 from 20 to 29 years old, 304 from 30 to 39 years old and 234 from 40 to 49 years old have been infected.

Already among the most adults, 172 cases are reported between 50 to 59 years, 121 from 60 to 69 years, 66 from 70 to 79 years and 16 older than 80 years plus four with unknown ages.

With 20.3 percent, people aged 70 to 79 represent the highest lethality by age registered in the national territory.

A total of 707 men (75%) have been infected by Covid-19 since last March 11 that arrived in the country and in the case of women there are 533 (24%), this shows that in the quarantine the ladies are more obedient to the restrictions issued by the authorities.

In Honduras there are currently 973 active cases, 744 of them recovering at home, 212 stable hospitalized, seven serious, 11 in intensive care rooms and 93
have passed away.

As for the most affected municipalities, there are 15, most in the Sula Valley, where infections have soared exponentially.

In descending order, the municipalities with the most cases and their percentages are: San Pedro Sula, 615 cases (50.42%); Central District, 197 cases (13.5%); Villanueva, 87 cases (7.3%); Choloma, 46 cases (3.57%); El Progreso, 32 cases (2.72%); La Lima, 32 cases (2.63%); Pepper, 31
cases (2.38%).

The list continues with San Manuel, 24 cases (2.04%); Puerto Cortés, 23 cases (1.7%); La Ceiba, 22 cases (1.87%); Santa Fe, 15 cases (1.27%).

OF INTEREST: Three soldiers positive for coronavirus recover successfully

The top 15, Tocoa, completed nine cases (0.76%); Sparta, seven cases (0.59%); Intibucá, nine cases (0.76%), and Las Vegas, seven cases (0.59%).

The rest of the municipalities with cases represent less than 10 percent of those infected. In the case of the Covid-19 tests carried out so far, a total of 5,653 tests have been applied in the country.

It could be seen that 71.59 percent of the Covid-19 tests performed were negative and 28.4 percent positive.

In the first week of the disease in the country 756 tests were applied, the following week they were 723, later about 459 tests.

For the fourth week in Honduras, 891 tests were reported, almost double that of the previous week, and the last nine days, 2,196 Covid-19 tests were applied.

Corona: Worldwide interest because virus is ignored in this league

Soccer Central America

Corona doesn’t matter in this league

| Reading time: 2 minutes

Football is still played in this country

Football is played in Central American Nicaragua despite the corona virus. The national league association even receives requests from Sweden about a possible transmission.

There are still professional football and championship games in the world. In Nicaragua, the virus defies all dangers. This leads to unexpected offers. But now there is a competitor.

EIt is no longer an exaggeration to say that inclined circles are hungry for football. It can also be documented quite well when the view is directed towards Nicaragua.

Despite the corona virus and warning examples from the rest of the foreign leagues, soccer is still cheerfully played there. In front of empty stands, but that was about the calm. The players complain loudly that they are afraid of being infected by training and game operations, but this goes unheeded, and so they just go on: because of stubborn officials and the bravery of the professionals.

Leader Managua continues to deliver an exciting title race with the most persistent and tied pursuers Real Estell and Diriangén, although it should perhaps be mentioned that fourth place Walter Ferretti and fifth place team ART Jalapa are quite far behind.

“The only cup winner in the world”

But because something is going on in Nicaragua, at least new perspectives are opening up worldwide. There are inquiries from Sweden, for example, whether the broadcasting rights to the league games are still available.

“The fans always want to see football. I think that’s why we get attention, ”said José María Bermúdez of the Nicaraguan Football Association.

In order not to risk the favor of the hour yet, the South Americans may have to award the contract quickly because competition from Central Asia threatens. Tajikistan, actually better known for its hiking and climbing tours in the rugged mountains, could grow up as a competitor.

Because the season is just starting in the country. Tajikistan in the person of President Emomalij Rahmon is one of the most repressive countries in the world. It cannot be what is not allowed, which is why not only political opponents hardly have a chance, but also officially no corona virus, officially the country is corona-free.

It is already played in front of empty ranks, but everything else goes its normal way: the players start for training and now for the championship games, Corona or not. The Supercup has already been held – serial champion FC Istiklol won it – and “the only cup winner in the world” was celebrated on the website of the Asian association.
