Peruvian President Martin Vizcarra on Monday stressed the double challenge of curving the impact of COVID-19 and reopening some economic activities to generate jobs throughout the country.
"This allows us to resume economic activities and create jobs, thus generating well-being and improving the lives of Peruvian nationals," the Head of State pointed out.
As he remarked, activities are gradually reopening, for the benefit of the population, after a preliminary analysis that gives priority to health aspects.
He went on to say that some activities will not reopen yet, such as movies, bars, discos, mass sports events, and social gatherings.
Regarding the resumption of international flights, he said that the entrance of passengers and the path they will take to pass through immigration controls have been inspected, making the necessary checks to ensure that this resumption of flights does not represent a risk factor for infections.
There are even protocols that must be observed at the baggage claim area, where people usually get together.
During the inspection, the statesman was joined by Ministers Carlos Estremadoyro (Transport and Communications) and Cesar Gentille (Interior).
The resumption of international flights to further destinations will be gradual. The first flights, resumed today, will be to Guayaquil and Quito (Ecuador); La Paz and Santa Cruz (Bolivia); Bogota, Cali, and Medellin (Colombia); Panama (Panama); Asuncion (Paraguay); Montevideo (Uruguay); and Santiago (Chile).
This first stage will see flights that are no longer than 4 hours.
