Colombian health authorities have added another 15,366 cases to the total balance of those infected by coronavirus in the country, the same day that the nation has exceeded the barrier of 50,000 deaths.

Since the health crisis broke out, 1,972,345 Colombians have contracted the disease, of which 1,801,134 have managed to overcome it, after registering 14,964 hospital discharges in the last 24 hours.

In contrast, there are already 50,187 fatalities that the virus has claimed in the Latin American country, of which 395 are patients who have died in the last day.

Finally, the epidemiological balance of the Ministry of Health this Thursday reflects that there are 115,502 cases that remain active.

For his part, the Colombian president, Iván Duque, has met this Thursday virtually with the nine magistrates of the Constitutional Court to detail the National Vaccination Plan against COVID-19.

Despite the fact that the Colombian government has announced that it has reached agreements with different pharmaceutical companies to purchase the vaccines, a date has not yet been set for them to land in the country, although it is speculated that it could be for early February.

In front of the judges, Duque has exposed the criteria to prioritize the different inoculation phases, as well as the processes and logistics that will be used.
