Peru: Tayta Operation reaches vulnerable people in Lima's La Victoria district

12:14 | Lima, Jun. 8.

Peru's Ministry of Health (Minsa) implemented Tayta Operation (Territorial Aid Operation for Treatment and Isolation in Response to COVID-19) in El Porvenir —a neighborhood located in Lima’s La Victoria district— to protect its vulnerable population against COVID-19.

As part of the multisectoral response strategy, rapid response teams identified 770 people (around 168 families) in the area in order to conduct COVID-19 diagnostic tests, deliver medications, and provide guidance.

In addition, the operation included the participation of Defense Minister Walter Martos and La Victoria Mayor George Forsyth.

Launched last Monday in Manzanilla neighborhood of downtown Lima, Tayta Operation is aimed at the most vulnerable population, such as adults aged over 60 and people with comorbidity problems.

Through Tayta, the target population can undergo rapid tests and receive early treatment at home if they test positive, so as not to overload hospitals.
