For its part, the World Bank said that Latin America and the Caribbean has become the most affected region in the world in terms of the number of injuries and deaths, and is facing the worst health and economic results in the world due to Corona, expecting a decrease of 7.9 percent in the region's gross national product for the year 2020.
