Bolivia broke the 130,000 confirmed COVID-19 threshold this Friday after registering more than 600 new positives, and warns of the possibility that the Andean nation will experience a “second wave” of infections if not followed Safety measures.
Data from the Bolivian Ministry of Health shows that the country has detected 632 infections in the past 24 hours, bringing the global number to 130,051 cases.
Tarija’s department has returned to collect most of the cases recorded that day, as it has done for days. Tarija, who drove out Santa Cruz or Cochabamba in this regard, has notified 280 new infected people.
However, Santa Cruz continues to lead the way as the Bolivian ministry hardest hit by the pandemic, with a total of 42,100 infections. It is followed by La Paz with 33,875 and Cochabamba with 13,378. Tarija, in fourth place, has 11,547 cases.
