March 2 According to the report of Peruvian Public Information, the data released by the Ministry of Health of Peru on March 1 shows that the total number of confirmed cases in Peru has reached 133,939, and the total number of deaths has reached 46,685.
Peruvian President Sagasti said that the number of new infections and deaths have declined in recent days, so the government has lifted mandatory social isolation in high-risk areas to promote economic and employment recovery while curbing the epidemic.
Sagasti said that the Peruvian government is seeking a “perfect balance” between health care and economic recovery. “Confirmed cases and deaths will continue to decrease if citizens comply with restrictive precautions,” he stressed.
The Peruvian National Tourism Association (CANATUR) estimates that Peru’s tourism industry will begin to recover from 2024 to 2025, when all Peruvians will be vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.
CANATUR President Carlos Canar noted that quarantine could be lifted if visitors had already had two doses of coronavirus vaccine.
Some staff at restaurants, travel agencies and inns have lost their jobs due to the coronavirus pandemic, says Canal.
