Acting DHS chief Chad Wolf is reportedly planning a 'boondoggle' December tour of Latin America

Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, is planning a vague tour of Latin America despite the region's raging COVID-19 crisis, The Washington Post reported.

The weeklong trip would begin on December 7, The Post said, and likely include visits to Brazil, El Salvador, Panama, Colombia, and Ecuador.

Latin America and the US have been hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak, but Latin America is suffering uniquely in that it is reporting extremely high mortality rates.

The rates are so bad that, as of this week, one in every three global deaths from COVID-19 has taken place in Latin America, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
