Argentina health minister resigns over COVID vaccine scandal
Al Jazeera, 21 Feb 2021
Argentine President Alberto Fernandez has sworn in a new health minister, Carla Vizzotti, as he grapples with a scandal over COVID-19 vaccines.
The now-disgraced former minister, Gines Gonzalez Garcia is accused of allowing people with connections to jump the queue and receive vaccinations out of turn.
A similar scandal erupted in Peru a few days earlier, and both governments are scrambling to regain their people’s trust.
