Corona .. deaths in Peru rise and cross the threshold of 200 thousand

The Peruvian Ministry of Health announced that the death toll from the Corona virus, which causes “Covid-19” infection in the country, has crossed the threshold of 200,000 cases.

The ministry revealed that 25 new deaths were recorded during the past 24 hours, bringing the death toll to 200,003 since the outbreak of the epidemic in March 2020.

The country on the west coast of South America, with a population of 33 million, has recorded 2.2 million cases of the virus.

This, and Peru records the highest death rate relative to the population, with 6,065 deaths per million inhabitants, according to an AFP census based on official data.

The decline in the number of injuries allowed the government to ease some health measures and revitalize parts of the economy, as the night curfew was reduced to only two hours, while restaurants were allowed to operate at full capacity.

Peru comes after Brazil and Mexico in terms of the number of deaths in Latin America, knowing that the population in these two countries is seven and four times the population of Peru.
