El Salvador has exceeded 15,000 coronavirus cases after more than 400 cases occurred in a single day due to the tensions between the Nayib Bukele government and the opposition-controlled legislative assembly due to restrictive measures and reopening economically.
The Department of Health has reported that 405 new cases and eight other deaths have been identified in these 24 hours. The balance now amounts to 15,035 infected and 480 deaths.
The Salvadoran authorities have detailed that only 6,849 cases remain active, while 7,778 patients have managed to overcome COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus.
Bukele imposed a national quarantine at the beginning of the pandemic, which was modulated by the constant pulse between the government in favor of its maintenance and Congress, which is committed to de-escalation.
