Puerto Rico said this week that residents 16 or older will become eligible for the Covid-19 vaccine on Monday. And after a recent surge in new coronavirus cases, the island will impose a longer overnight curfew starting Friday.

The start of the curfew, which will last until May 9, will run until 10 a.m., and will continue to end at 5 a.m., Governor Pedro R. Pierluisi said in a declaration Wednesday.

Restaurants and businesses can continue to operate at 50 per cent capacity, while bars and clubs remain closed, he said.

We are seeing a dangerous increase in Covid cases that has led to a jump in hospitalizations and deaths, Mr Pierluisi said. I have been very cautious when it comes to reopening and have always been willing to make the necessary adjustments to prevent cases from being raised.

The average number of new coronavirus cases reported daily in Puerto Rico has risen 98 percent in the past two weeks, according to a New York Times database.

Already struggling with a debt crisis and the aftermath of hurricanes that have devastated the island in recent years, Puerto Rico has seen only 23 percent of its total population receive at least one vaccine dose so far, ranking it at ultimately between US states and territories.

Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that nationwide, about 110 million people, or approximately one-third of the U.S. population, have received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Earlier this week Hawaii became the last of 50 states to speed up the deadline to make all adults eligible for vaccination, keeping in mind President Bidens’ calls for states, territories and tribes to do so.

While the rate of vaccinations across the country has reached an average of about three million doses a day, outbreaks of the virus in the Midwest and Northeast have alarmed federal health officials.
