The Peruvian government will reevaluate the national health crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic to determine if “tougher measures” are needed, Health Minister Pilar Mazzetti said Saturday.
“We are monitoring the figures. There has been a new rebound,” Mazzetti said, adding quarantine measures may be extended in regions where cases are increasing.
According to the latest official report, Peru has so far registered 379,884 COVID-19 infections, with 18,030 deaths and 263,130 recoveries. A total of 13,043 people are currently hospitalized due to the disease.
