Puerto Rico, the forgotten island, was not forgotten by COVID-19. COVID PR statistics 35,446  infections. 434 dead of COVID . It is strange that Puerto Rico is not included in the list of countries with COVID-19 infections. How did they manage that?

HEADLINE FROM EL NUEVO DIA (local newspaper in Puerto Rico)

Published by nelsongon

I love media and communication, as well as digital technology. I write and speak fluently in Spanish and English. I was born in New York, but was sent to Puerto Rico at an early age, where I lived until drafted by the U.S. army. Upon returning from an honorable discharge, I found Puerto Rico small and limited at the time. I moved to Boston where I pursued musical studies and later worked as a musician, teacher, and speech-pathologist in New York. I am currently still interested in world politics, social justice, and income inequality. Health and wellness are essential to survive and thrive. I am working on patience and skills necessary to keep learning.
