Peru is ensuring an “open descent” of the pandemic and defends that it would have been a “massacre” without quarantine.

Peruvian Minister of Health Víctor Zamora said on Sunday that the COVID-19 contagion curve in the country was “openly declining” and has since defended the government’s measures to limit it otherwise it would have been a “massacre”.

Zamora explained that this decrease, although “slow”, is due to the fact that, on average, every patient with COVID-19 infects less than one person today, and explained this in Lima and Callao Province, where “there are 80 percent” of the Pandemic are in Peru, the number of reproductions of the virus is less than one.

Despite the fact that with 279,419 Peru is already the sixth country with the highest number of cases and registered 9,317 deaths, Zamora has since defended the government’s containment measures in an interview for the Peruvian newspaper ‘La República’ under “conservative projections”, 145,000 people were saved and more than a million hospitalizations were avoided.
