Prime Minister Vicente Zeballos has reminded citizens about the measures to prevent the COVID-19 from further spreading in Peru.
"We must be strict in social distancing, hand washing, and wearing a facemask. Every time we go out without a reason, we put the health of our family at risk," he wrote on Twitter.
According to the Cabinet chief, the only objective of Te Cuido Peru (I take care of you, Peru) interventions are to avoid more contagion cases in crowding areas.
The said State-run program was implemented to detect COVID-19 infected people —who have mild symptoms or are asymptomatic—, their relatives and contacts, in order to isolate them and break the chain of contagion in Peru.
The message was posted within the framework of
a mandatory social isolation imposed to prevent the COVID-19 from further spreading in the South American country.
Initially set to last from March 16 to 30, the social isolation measure has been extended until June 30.
The post about “Peru PM mentions measures to prevent COVID-19 contagion" first appeared on the Andina website.
