Gibralter is pandemic-famous for being the first nation to vaccinate its entire adult population. The effort only took nine weeks and was completed in March 2021. Gibralter has only 34,000 inhabitants in its 2.6 square miles.
So Gibralter should be wide open an back to normal life now, right?
A couple weeks ago, the CDC added Gibralter to its “very high COVID-19 risk” list. CDC recommends not traveling to countries on the list. The linked article at WDSU.com notes that:
Destinations that fall into the “very high” risk category have had more than 500 cases per 100,000 residents in the past 28 days, according to CDC parameters.
These vaccines are increasingly looking like a pig in a poke.
