Haiti president Jovenel Moïse assassinated
Prime minister says attack carried out by ‘armed commando group’ that included foreign elements

The president of Haiti, Jovenel Moïse, has been assassinated in his home by a group of armed men who also seriously injured his wife, according to a statement and comments made by the country’s interim prime minister.
Speaking on a local radio station, Claude Joseph confirmed that Moïse, 53, had been killed, saying the attack was carried out by an “armed commando group” that included foreigners.
In a televised national address later on Wednesday, Joseph declared a state of emergency across the country, and made a call for calm. “The situation is under control,” he said.
According to the Haitian ambassador to Washington, Bocchit Edmond, Moïse’s killers claimed to be members of the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as they entered his guarded residence.
“This was a well-orchestrated commando attack,” Edmond told the Guardian. “They presented themselves as DEA agents, telling people they had come as part of a DEA operation.”
In videos circulating on social media, a man with an American accent is heard saying in English over a megaphone: “DEA operation. Everybody stand down. DEA operation. Everybody back up, stand down.”
Residents reported hearing gunshots and seeing men dressed in black running through the neighbourhood.
“It could be foreign mercenaries, because the video footage showed them speaking in Spanish,” Edmond said. “It was something carried out by professionals, by killers … But since the investigation has been just been opened, we prefer to wait on legal authorities to have a better assessment of the situation. We don’t know for sure, with real certainty, who’s behind this.
“This is an act of barbarity. It’s an attack on our democracy,” he said.
Edmond said he had asked the White House on Wednesday morning for US help in identifying and capturing the killers.
“We need a lot more information,” Joe Biden said later at the White House, calling the killing “very worrisome”.
In a written statement, the US president offered condolences and assistance. “We condemn this heinous act, and I am sending my sincere wishes for First Lady Moïse’s recovery,” the statement said. “The United States offers condolences to the people of Haiti, and we stand ready to assist as we continue to work for a safe and secure Haiti.”
The attack took place at Moïse’s house in the Pelerin 5 district of Pétionville, a wealthy area with sometimes substantial and leafy villas in the hills above the capital, Port-au-Prince, with a reputation for being safe. It is an area critics of Moïse said he was loth to leave.
“Around one o’clock in the morning, during the night of Tuesday 6 to Wednesday 7 July 2021, a group of unidentified individuals, including some speaking Spanish, attacked the private residence of the president and fatally injured the head of state,” Joseph said in a statement quoted in the media.
Edmond said that Moïse’s three children were safe but his wife, Martine, was seriously wounded in the attack and was being taken to a hospital in Miami on Wednesday.
The attack happened barely 24 hours after Moïse had named a new prime minister, Ariel Henry, to take charge as head of the government and prepare the country for presidential elections in the next two months.
Moïse, a former entrepreneur, was the anointed political successor of the former president Michel Martelly. The assassination is likely to plunge the impoverished Caribbean nation into further turmoil after several years marked by political unrest and violence.
The US embassy said it would be closed on Wednesday owing to the “ongoing security situation”. “We’re still gathering information,” the White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, said on MSNBC. “We’re still assessing right now.”
“It’s a horrific crime,” Psaki added in an interview with CNN. “We stand ready and stand by them to provide any assistance that’s needed.”
Boris Johnson, the UK prime minister, said: “I am shocked and saddened at the death of President Moïse. Our condolences are with his family and the people of Haiti. This is an abhorrent act and I call for calm at this time.”
As details of the assassination emerged, the Colombian president, Iván Duque, called on the Organisation of American States to send an urgent mission to “protect the democratic order in Haiti”.
Moïse’s time in office was marked by an increase in political instability, allegations of corruption and a long-running dispute about when his period in office should end. He had been ruling by decree for more than a year after the country failed to hold legislative elections and he wanted to push through controversial constitutional changes.
There have been intermittent periods of protests and street violence and a rise in gang violence, some of it tied to political parties.
Haiti’s opposition claims Moïse should have stepped down on 7 February to coincide with the fifth anniversary of 2015 elections that were cancelled and then re-run a year later because of allegations of fraud. They allege that because Moïse failed to hold legislative elections in 2019, he violated the country’s 1987 constitution. His supporters rejected that argument, saying he only took power in 2017 after winning the re-run. In February the US said it supported Moïse’s position that he had the right to govern until February 2022.
Instability has been exacerbated by the Petrocaribe scandal, a controversy that arose from a scheme to buy discounted oil from Venezuela on cheap credit. The idea was to free up funds for social schemes, but the money was pocketed by politicians.
Earlier this year amid allegations by Moïse of a coup attempt that planned to “murder him” and fresh protests, he moved to protect his position, ordering the arrest of 23 people including a supreme court judge and a senior police official, while declaring he was “not a dictator”.
Opponents had also accused Moïse’s government of fuelling political violence by providing gangs with guns and money to intimidate his adversaries.
The Caribbean country – the world’s first black republic after its revolution against French rule – has a history marked by poverty, authoritarian rule, political instability and external interference including a long US occupation. It has struggled to rebuild since a devastating earthquake in 2010 and Hurricane Matthew in 2016.
New Video Emerges Following the Assassination of Haiti President Jovenel Moïse
07. Juli 2021
The assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse appears to have been partially caught on camera — with the dramatic clips revealing the sound of multiple gunshots and scenes of armed men following the ambush.
“DEA operation! Everybody stand down!” someone with an American accent is heard saying in English over a loudspeaker in footage first shared by the Miami Herald.
“DEA operation! Everybody back up, stand down!” the warning continued, according to footage filmed around 1 a.m. Wednesday by one of the president’s neighbors in the hills above Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince.
An Eyepress video provided by Reuters also caught the sound of more than 30 gunshots ringing out, with a barking dog the only other audio in the background.
A group of heavily armed men was also filmed by a neighbor standing around the president’s home in Pelerin 5, with one person forced to lie face-down in the middle of the road.
The Miami Herald suggested the men might have been part of the security response after the attack.
However, some appeared to be speaking in Spanish, which would match the claim by Haitian government officials that some of the hit team “were speaking” the language, rather than Haiti’s typical French or Haitian Creole.
They appeared to be part of a convoy of at least five vehicles that was filmed slowly driving away from where the controversial 53-year-old president was shot dead and the first lady injured. The convoy showed the “gunmen leave after the assassination,” according to another Eyepress clip shared by Reuters.

Mounting Evidence Shows Haitian President Moïse Was Assassinated Before Blowing Whistle on Vaccines
It's the type of conspiracy theory we normally avoid, but the evidence continues to mount and somebody needs to be paying attention.
By JD Rucker 13. July 2021
There is growing speculation that Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated before he could blow the whistle on Covid-19 vaccines. Before we get into that speculation, let’s start with the facts.
Haiti is the only nation in the western hemisphere that does not have Covid-19 injections available to the people. Considering the extreme poverty, cramped conditions, horrible healthcare infrastructure, and a population that is extremely vaccine hesitant, one might think the nation would be a cesspool of Covid-19 cases. It is not. In fact, scientists had been studying the people in the nation to determine why they seem to be so resistant before being recalled for unknown reasons.
To put it into perspective, let’s compare Haiti to New Jersey. They have a similar population density with Haiti having 11.5 million people across 10,714 square miles and New Jersey having 9.2 million people across 8,721 square miles. Haiti has had 19,295 Covid-19 cases. New Jersey has had 1,026,286. Some of this can be attributed to Haiti’s poor medical infrastructure reducing the amount of Covid tests, but lack of tests cannot account for dramatically lower deaths. They’ve had 482 compared to New Jersey’s 26,509 Covid deaths.
Let’s break down those numbers. Despite similar population density, higher total population, and worse healthcare available, Haiti has had 1.8% of the Covid cases that New Jersey has had. Put another way, the citizens of New Jersey with a high vaccination rate are 53-times more likely to contract Covid-19 than Haitians who do not have access to a vaccine.
Moïse knew this. It’s one of the reasons he rejected free vaccines in May and June. But you won’t hear about that. Not anymore. The official storyline about Haiti’s vaccine hesitancy has suddenly changed following Moïse’s assassination. Now, the health officials in the country are claiming they didn’t reject ALL vaccines, just the AstraZeneca vaccines because of the higher risks they supposedly have. Of course, this narrative didn’t materialize until AFTER Moïse was murdered.
With Moïse out of the way, the doors are opening wide for the nation that doesn’t need nor want the vaccines to suddenly have them available. As if on cue, the Biden regime has offered to send millions of vaccines to the nation very soon. Meanwhile, connections between Moïse’s assassination and America’s Deep State continue to pop up. According to Breitbart:
The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) has informed the Senate Judiciary Committee that one of the suspects in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was a “confidential source” to the agency, Breitbart News has learned.
A senior Senate GOP aide told Breitbart News on Monday evening that the DEA willingly told the Senate Judiciary Committee—without any inquiry into the matter—that one of the suspects in the assassination “was a confidential source to the DEA.”
“At times, one of the suspects in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was a confidential source to the DEA,” the DEA told the Senate Judiciary Committee. “Following the assassination of President Moïse, the suspect reached out to his contacts at the DEA. A DEA official assigned to Haiti urged the suspect to surrender to local authorities and, along with a U.S. State Department official, provided information to the Haitian government that assisted in the surrender and arrest of the suspect and one other individual. DEA is aware of reports that President Moïse’s assassins yelled ‘DEA’ at the time of their attack. These individuals were not acting on behalf of DEA.”
Senate staffers told Breitbart News upon receiving the information from the DEA they were a bit shocked the agency was so proactively forthcoming—a sign they think that the agency is worried about this narrative unfolding and is attempting to get ahead of any looming Senate inquiry into the matter.
The DEA issued the same statement to CNN in response to inquiries about the matter.
In addition to DEA ties to some of the suspects in the plot, CNN also reported that others had potential ties to other agencies as well—including the FBI.
“Others also had U.S. ties, including working as informants for the FBI, the people briefed on the matter said. The FBI said in response to CNN’s reporting that it doesn’t comment on informants, except to say that it uses ‘lawful sources to collect intelligence’ as part of its investigations,” CNN’s Evan Perez wrote. “President Jovenel Moise was killed Wednesday in an operation that Haitian authorities say involved at least 28 people, many of them Colombian mercenaries hired through a Florida-based security company. Authorities on Monday announced the arrest of a suspect who they say orchestrated the assassination. Christian Emmanuel Sanon, 63 years old, entered the country on a private jet in June, Police Chief Leon Charles said at a news conference. Haitian authorities say that Sanon hired Florida-based CTU Security, which they alleged recruited men initially to provide security for Sanon, though their mission appears to have changed thereafter. It’s not clear that the men who worked as U.S. law enforcement informants wittingly participated in the assassination plot or were aware of the mission, the people briefed on the matter said.”
Of all the people to have involved in the assassination in a population over 11 million, having both DEA- and FBI-affiliated Haitians among the 28 alleged co-conspirators is extraordinarily suspicious. Now, the FBI is down there to get it all swept under the rug.
As noted before, the new narrative indicates the government’s hesitancy was based on AstraZeneca’s perceived risks. This is a bald-faced lie. Moïse had rejected the free vaccines BEFORE concerns about AstraZeneca’s shots had materialized. He, like millions of Haitians, was a vaccine skeptic. His nation had not felt a “major” bump in Covid-19 cases or deaths. In fact, it wasn’t until this last month that there had been any significant “spike,” and that in itself is dubious as testing has increased at an exponential rate since early June. The powers-that-be hoped by demonstrating huge numbers of cases, they’d be able to sway Moïse’s thinking. The “spike” they were able to manufacture with multiple times more tests being done was 3,734 cases in the month of June. New Jersey had 3,880 new cases on April 17 alone.
Here’s where we get conspiratorial and speculative. Having failed to convince Moïse of the efficacy of their injections, they couldn’t just let him continue to be the shining example of how Covid-19 vaccines weren’t necessary. Rumors have spread that he was going to blow the whistle on the vaccines based on information he had received about them, their manufacturers, and the U.S. government. Studies in Haiti have since been halted for “safety” concerns even though the same risks were present in the nation when the studies began. Considering people on the DEA’s and FBI’s payrolls were among those allegedly involved in the assassination, every alarm bell should be ringing in our minds right about now.
Anonymous sources have backed speculation that Moïse was blowing the whistle soon, but we do not quote anonymous sources even when they seem to corroborate each other. Unfortunately, that’s where the trail goes cold. I have been unable to get anyone on record about what Moïse may have known and when he was going to release the information. But the numbers speak for themselves as far as vaccine necessity. The actions of the Biden regime are conspicuous and self-serving towards advancing “The Great Reset.” The changing narrative is is suspicious. Lastly, the Deep State’s alleged participation in the assassination is impossible to dismiss without total cognitive dissonance.
As Catturd noted, we’re almost certainly never going to find out what really happened. Covering up the truth is what they do for a living and they’re very proficient. Meanwhile, the vaccine drumbeat continues.
Florida Doctor Christian Emmanuel Sanon Arrested In Deadly Attack On Haitian President Jovenel Moïse
By CBS Miami - 12. July 2021
MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A doctor who lives in Florida has been arrested in connection to the deadly attack on Haitian President Jovenel Moïse.
Police said Dr. Christian Emmanuel Sanon was one of the masterminds. They said he arrived in Haiti last month on a private jet with “political motives.”
The attackers reportedly were only supposed to arrest Moïse and then install Sanon as president.
Police said they obtained the information from several suspects they’ve arrested and interrogated.
The White House has sent a team to Haiti to provide assistance. The delegation includes experts from the National Security Council, the State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security.
They will meet with Haitian government leaders to learn more about their needs and then brief President Joe Biden on their return.
A Pentagon spokesman said they are also reviewing a request to send hundreds of U.S. troops to Haiti.
THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU REFUSE THE COVID VACCINE
First published on BITCHUTE July 12th, 2021.
As you all know, Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated. Similar to other leaders who died within the last year, he opposed the COVID-19 vaccines.
Psaki recently announced the US will be sending COVID-19 vaccines to Haiti.
PROLOGUE: The government of former President Jovenel Moise refused the delivery of AstraZeneca-Oxford jabs, because of its known side effects and because they wanted to protect Haitians from receiving injections with stuff that has been banned in many European countries. Their stock shall now be pushed on innocent people in poor nations. The United Nations is deeply involved in these crimes against humanity, their immunities need to be lifted and those responsible face trial.

As most of you know by now, Haiti’s President Jovenel Moise was assassinated in his home in the early hours of July 7th.
What most people don’t know about the late President Jovenel Moise is that he was very skeptical of COVID-19 vaccines.
At the start of the pandemic the WHO offered the nation of Haiti free AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines in which the Haiti government led by President Moise refused the free vaccines.
In hindsight the move by Haiti was a good idea considering other countries halted the Astra Zeneca vaccine after severe side effects occurred in those who took the vaccine.
Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western hemisphere, has earned another grim distinction: it’s the only one that hasn’t vaccinated a single resident against Covid-19.
One of a handful of nations worldwide still awaiting vaccines, Haiti was among the 92 poor and middle-income countries offered doses under the Covax Facility. But the government initially declined AstraZeneca PLC shots, citing side effects and widespread fears in the population.
“Haiti did not reject the offer of vaccines from Covax,” Haiti Ministry of Health General Director Laure Adrien said in a telephone interview. “All we asked was that they change the vaccine they were providing us.
According to the New York Times the country has yet to receive even a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine:
But now read this piece from the New Humanitarian:
The Haitian government refused that initial shipment, citing concerns over adverse side effects like blood clotting associated with the AstraZeneca brand. The government’s infrastructure to properly store the vaccine was also inadequate, although UNICEF told The New Humanitarian that 80 percent of Haiti’s temperature-controlled supply chain storage had been upgraded in the last few years.
According to the World Health Organization, Haiti is one of a handful of countries that have not begun vaccination programmes.
Haiti is among the low- and lower middle-income countries targeted by a donation of 55 million Pfizer doses from US President Joe Biden’s administration, but it’s unclear when Haiti will receive its first delivery.
“We’re hoping for sometime in July,” Health Ministry Director General Lauré Adrien told The New Humanitarian. “When we decided to delay the 756,000 doses from the COVAX programme, we weren’t in the same situation as we find ourselves today.”
Did you notice that the new shipment of Pfizer vaccines are coming from the Biden administration?
But that’s not the strangest part, Health Ministry Director General Laure Adrien said their hoping for the shipment in “July” the same month their President would end up being assassinated
The Health Ministry Director General made his statement just two days before Haiti’s President was assassinated.
Now with the country under a police/military state expect Haiti’s vaccination numbers to sky rocket.
"Mercenaries came to the president's house, they tortured him and they killed him," Joseph said. "We captured about 20 of them. They are currently in custody. And we believe, we staunchly believe, that justice will be provided to the President Jovenel Moise… We do have the right people [in custody].”
At around 1 a.m. local time on Wednesday, an armed group stormed Moise’s residence and shot and killed the head of state. The group claimed to be U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents during the raid, according to Haitian Ambassador to the U.S. Bocchit Edmond, which both the Haitian and U.S. governments have denied.
In the interview on Friday, Joseph said his main focus was to bring justice to Moise’s family as the leadership crisis threatens to bring more hardship and chaos to one of the poorest countries in the world.
Joseph, who appeared emotional in the interview, said he was "shocked" at the manner of Moise’s death.
On Saturday, an audio message from Martine Moise, the first lady of Haiti, who was wounded in the attack and airlifted to Florida to receive treatment, was released from her official Twitter account. A Haitian official told ABC News that it was authentic.
"This great act of murder makes me and my children cry, and I know you are crying too," she said. "This act has no name, because it must be a crime out of bounds to assassinate a president like Jovenel Moise without giving him the opportunity to utter a word."
At least 17 suspects have been arrested in connection with the assassination, including two U.S. citizens, identified by the authorities as James Solages, 35, and Joseph Vincent, 55.
Haitian Judge Clement Noel, who is close to the case and said he had interviewed the pair, told ABC News they claimed to be working as translators for the group and denied being mercenaries. According to Noel, Solages said he found the job on the internet and that they were supposed to arrest Moise rather than kill him.
"We are certainly aware of the arrest of the two U.S. citizens who are in Haiti and continue to closely monitor the situation," U.S. State Department deputy spokesperson Jalina Porter said.
Fifteen of those arrested were Colombian nationals, some of whom are believed to have military backgrounds, according to the Colombian authorities. Two Colombian nationals were killed in a shootout in Port-au-Prince on Wednesday, Noel confirmed.
Letters viewed by ABC News show the Haitian government asking both Secretary of State Antony Blinken and the United Nations to send troops to help stabilize the the turbulent Caribbean nation and support national police. The troops were also requested to protect key infrastructure, including the airport, ports and gas terminals, as well as to help maintain electoral security.
On Saturday, a senior administration official told ABC News that "there are currently no plans to send U.S. military assistance to Haiti."
The White House said Friday that FBI and Department of Homeland Security officials would be sent to Haiti to assist with the investigation into the assassination.
While Haiti's streets remain relatively quiet, Joseph’s authority has been contested by another candidate for the position of prime minister, Ariel Henry, who was scheduled to take over before the assassination this week. Henry and his supporters have questioned Joseph’s legitimacy.
Prior to the assassination, Moise’s opponents claimed the former president had overstayed his time in power, while the U.S. and U.N. both backed his claim that his term was scheduled to end in February 2022.
State Department spokesperson Ned Price said that the U.S. would continue to work with Joseph since he is the incumbent, saying that U.S. officials had also been in contact with Henry, urging calm.
Joseph Lambert, the president of Haiti’s Senate, has positioned himself as the next interim president, though it remains to be seen who he would back him. Eight sitting senators have so far signed a memorandum in support of Lambert’s appointment, but the situation is constitutionally unclear.
Asked about the political power struggle, Joseph said that his main focus was on the investigation into Moise’s assassination.
"I don’t know if there is a power struggle. I’m not paying attention to whether or not there is a power struggle. I’m paying attention to giving justice to President Jovenel Moise... but I was interim prime minister. After the tragic death of Jovenel Moise I had to take charge and I did.”
ABC News' Marcus Moore, Conor Finnegan, Sarah Kolinovsky and Kirit Radia contributed to this report.
Here we go.
Haiti’s interim government asked the United States to deploy troops to protect key infrastructure after the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.
Haitian President Jovenel Moise was assassinated in the middle of the night in his home Wednesday in a “barbaric act.”
According to reports, Moise was shot 12 times – including through his forehead, hip, abdomen, nipples and his left eye was gouged out.
“The president’s office and bedroom were ransacked,” Carl Henry Destin, deputy justice of the peace in Pétion-Ville said. “We found him lying on his back, blue pants, a white shirt stained with blood, his mouth open, his left eye gouged out.”
The Haitian government declared a state of emergency Wednesday morning.
Gunfire erupted after Moise’s assassination and witnesses say gunfire is now “everywhere.”
The United States condemned the attack and called it a “horrific crime.”
Biden offered Haiti assistance and on Friday they asked the US to deploy troops to help stabilize the country as they prepare for elections.
Associated Press reported:
Haiti’s interim government said Friday that it asked the U.S. to deploy troops to protect key infrastructure as it tries to stabilize the country and prepare the way for elections in the aftermath of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.
“We definitely need assistance and we’ve asked our international partners for help,” Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph told The Associated Press in an interview, declining to provide further details. “We believe our partners can assist the national police in resolving the situation.”
Joseph said that he was dismayed by opponents who’ve tried to take advantage of Moïse’s murder to seize political power — an indirect reference to a group of lawmakers have declared their loyalty and recognized Joseph Lambert, the head of Haiti’s dismantled senate, as provisional president and Ariel Henry, whom Moïse designated as prime minister a day before he was killed, as prime minister.
“I’m not interested in a power struggle,” Joseph said in the brief phone interview, without mentioning Lambert by name. “There’s only one way people can become president in Haiti. And that’s through elections.”
The White House on Friday said the US is sending $5 million to Haiti to help police fight gangs as well as sending senior FBI and DHS officials for security and investigative assistance.
WHO BELIEVES THE US-AMERICAN MAINSTREAM NEWS???
President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated in his home. First Lady Martine Moïse was also shot and has been hospitalized
The widow of slain Haitian President Jovenel Moise spoke out for the first time Saturday after her husband was gunned down by a team of assassins Wednesday morning in the beleaguered Caribbean nation.
"I’m alive, thanks to God," Martine Moïse said in Creole in a 2-minute recording that was posted on Twitter and played on radio stations throughout Haiti. "But I love my husband Jovenel. We fought together for more than 25 years. During all these years, love radiated within the home. But suddenly, the mercenaries came and pelted my husband with bullets."
Moïse, who is currently being treated at a Miami hospital for injuries she sustained during the attack, also said "you know who the president was fighting against."
"You have to be a notorious criminal without guts to assassinate a president like Jovenel Moïse with impunity without giving him the chance to speak," she said.

Authorities have already arrested 17 people, including several former Colombian soldiers and two men who are believed to be Haitian Americans.
"They sent mercenaries to kill the president at his home with members of his family because of roads, water, electricity and referendum as well as elections at the end of the year so that there is no transition in the country," Moïse said Saturday.

Haiti still not ready to receive COVID-19 vaccines as delays drag on, Pan American health group says
By Jacqueline Charles, Miami Herald - 05. May 2021
While most countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have begun administering COVID-19 vaccines, Haiti still has not completed the necessary steps to receive a single shot, the Pan American Health Organization acknowledged Wednesday.

“Haiti is still in the process to finalize the arrangements that all the other countries have made to be able to receive these vaccines,” said Dr. Jarbas Barbosa, assistant director of PAHO. “Haiti is not paying for these vaccines but the country needs to make some legal and administrative arrangements.”
PAHO did not provide further details on the holdup. Prior to receiving vaccines, Haiti’s health ministry needs to ensure that all measures are in place, like the training of personnel, logistics including storage and surveillance, as well as authorizing the import of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
Haiti is among 10 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean that has been allotted COVID-19 vaccines at no cost for 20% of its population. As part of its first shipment, the country is slated to receive 756,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
PAHO officials were hoping to have the doses arrive by the end of this month. But now even that is uncertain. Not only are the arrangements in Haiti a problem, but so is India’s ongoing deadly surge.

The Serum Institute of India had committed to sending about one billion doses of AstraZeneca vaccines to the COVAX Facility, the United Nations-backed alliance helping poorer nations obtain the life-saving shots. But after COVID-19 cases began exploding in India, the Indian government halted its exports and has not yet authorized the manufacturer to release doses for shipment.
Haiti, Nicaragua and Boliva were all supposed to get vaccines from Serum through COVAX this month.
“We’re still negotiating with the government of India so that the Serum Institute of India is able to fulfill its contracts, the contracts they have with the COVAX Facility,” Barbosa said.
Barbosa said if an agreement isn’t reached, the temporary suspension could affect supplies not just in the region but elsewhere. In high-level negotiations involving the director general of the World Health Organization and others, the WHO is proposing that part of Serum’s production be sent to COVAX for distribution and the other remain for India’s domestic use.
Haiti has registered 13,164 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 263 deaths since the virus was first confirmed last March. While the virus is surging elsewhere in the region, most Haitians have given up wearing masks, and life in general has returned to what it was before the pandemic.
Last month, Haiti’s Ministry of Health raised concerns about the safety of the AstraZeneca vaccine in light of reports out of Europe that the manufacturer’s shots could pose a blood clot risk. It asked Gavi, the Geneva-based public-private vaccine alliance that is leading COVAX with the WHO, to consider changing the AstraZeneca vaccine to a single-shot vaccine. The only single-shot vaccine that is available currently is through Johnson & Johnson, and its rollout in the region won’t happen until this summer.
PAHO has said if Haiti rejects its free vaccines, its doses will be reallocated to another country.
