Bolivia Reports Over 100 Deaths in a Single Day

Bolivia is one of the Latin American countries that suffer the least deaths from coronavirus, compared to the neighboring countries.

However, medical officials are reporting higher numbers since the second wave of the virus started thriving throughout the continent.

Although Bolivia’s positivity rates started declining earlier in August, this week, the Health Ministry of the country has reported a surge in new infections and coronavirus deaths.

Bolivia’s Ministry of Health reported 102 coronavirus deaths in a single day, which is a number that alarms the authorities to take new protective measures to stop the virus.

The high rates of unemployment in Bolivia are forcing people to live day-to-day life where they need to be out on the markets and try to make a daily living by selling food, beverages, old clothes, and household supplies.

By not respecting the lockdown rules, Bolivians are more exposed to the virus, therefore the death toll is on the rise again.

The total number of infected people in Bolivia is 117,928, while 5,203 have lost their lives.

Bolivia has a population of 11 million, so these numbers are alarming for the government.
