Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra stressed this Wednesday that in 16 of the country’s 25 regions, the contagion factor from the coronavirus is less than one, indicating that “great progress” has been made in containing the pandemic asked to “not let go of your guard”.
“Of these 25 regions (the Ministry of Health team), scientific information has shown us that there are 16 regions whose contagion factor is less than one,” said Vizcarra in an appearance to assess the situation of COVID. -19 in the Latin American country.
In various regions such as Arequipa, Ica or San Martín, the spread of the coronavirus is very widespread due to its population, although the health authorities believe that the curve tends to stabilize. According to Vizcarra, smaller companies like Madre de Dios or Tacna have seen some upswing in the past week.
“Then we need to act quickly and collectively, asking for the responsibility and commitment of their authorities to improve responsiveness and communication with the population so that they always adhere to the appropriate health protocols,” he said.
