July 14, 2020

Colombian President Iván Duque has said that the country has not yet reached the “national peak” of the contagion curve in the coronavirus pandemic, but believes it has been reached in some areas.

“We cannot speak of a national high point, but in the past few days we have seen the infections focus on five communities,” he said in his speech on Monday, which the Colombian press had collected on Tuesday.

He predicted that “the next few weeks will be the biggest challenge in many parts of the country.” “As long as we don’t give up our vigilance … I’m sure we can overcome this pandemic difficulty with a lower mortality rate than in other countries,” he said.
