Mar 31, 2020

The Bolivian police have had to sharpen their wits to raise awareness among La Paz residents about the importance of taking measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Footage filmed on Monday shows two police officers disguised as the coronavirus walking the streets of the Bolivian capital to the beat of music, to raise awareness of the importance of maintaining hygiene and social distancing measures, and thus avoiding the spread of COVID-19.

So far, Bolivia has confirmed 96 cases of the coronavirus and two deaths. The country's authorities have declared a national state of emergency, which has been complemented by a quarantine.
