Interim President of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez, asked this Sunday for “reflection” on the risk of possible COVID-19 infections on the eve of the mobilizations called by sectors of former President Evo Morales’ party, Movimiento al Socialismo (MAS). from this Monday.
“I call on the population to think because they not only endanger their own lives and health, but can also infect their families,” said Áñez in an interview with Bolivia TV, which was collected by the Bolivian news agency ABI. .
“Well, at least if you don’t think of yourself, think of your children and you don’t know how the organism will react,” he added, insisting that the population “take care of their lives, theirs.” Health cares, cares about the lives of their children in a family environment “.
The sectors associated with the MAS, social organizations led by the Central Obrera Boliviana (COB), have since Monday called for mobilizations against the postponement of the elections, which the Bolivian Supreme Electoral Court (TSE) has dated October 18 due to the situation due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
