A lot of people in Haiti have stopped wearing masks, greet with hugs and handshakes, and dance in large crowds. Many don’t believe the virus is real. So why isn’t Haiti ravaged with the coronavirus? Why is the Haiti COVID-19 death rate so low?

According to Local 10, during the initial spread of the virus, Haitian President Jovenel Moise said, “Some decisions we made early. We decided to completely shut down the country for four months.”

Data from Johns Hopkins University  shows 260 deaths and 13,149 infections out of the approximately 11 million people in Haiti. According to Haitian President Jovenel Moise, Haitian people are protected by a strong relationship with nature and  a plant that produces certain tea that’s made with ginger root.

The president says when vaccinations are available he will not force people to take them.

So, is there some Haitian magic going on, or are they just not reporting the same way other countries are?  And where can I get some of this Haitian Ginger Tea?
