Laut eines Berichtes von CBS wird nach dem Ausbruch des Vulkans Soufrière auf der Karibikinsel St. Vincent mit der Evakuierung der Bewohner begonnen, allerdings nur derjenigen die bereits eine Covid-19-Schutzimpfung hinter sich haben:
Nearly 20,000 people have been forced out of their homes on the Caribbean island of St. Vincent after a volcano erupted there for the first time in more than 40 years.

Gonsalves said people have to be vaccinated if they go aboard a cruise ship or are granted temporary refuge on another island.
Gonsalves added that he highly recommends those who opt to go to a shelter in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, an island chain of more than 100,000 people, be vaccinated. Authorities said those staying in shelters would be tested for COVID-19, and that anyone who tests positive would be taken to an isolation center.
Schöne neue Welt.
