Peru extended the suspension of flights from Brazil, the United Kingdom, South Africa and India until May 30 to prevent the entry of a new type of coronavirus into the country, at a time when the country faces a second deadly wave of pandemics.

A decree published in the official directory states that as of May 30, entry into the national territory of foreigners, who are not residents of South Africa, Brazil and India, or who have stayed in these places in the last fourteen days is suspended. .

According to the decree, “the provision is intended to prevent the spread of Kovid-19 in the current health emergency”.

Peru banned flights from the United Kingdom and South Africa in mid-December and from Brazil to January 26, measures taken because of new variants of coronoviruses that emerged in countries more susceptible to infectious infections.

Every 15 days, the government evaluates suspending or maintaining the ban based on the development of the epidemic.

According to health officials, the expansion of the term seemed inevitable given the worrisome increase in cases, especially with the Brazilian tensions in the capital Lima.

This variant causes 40% of the cases reported in previous months in Lima, the Ministry of Health indicated.

Peru and Brazil share a border of 2,800 kilometers in the Amazon.

Officials did not provide details of the number of cases found with variants from the United Kingdom or South Africa.

Lima, with 10 million inhabitants, is the most affected by the Peruvian city virus. Its hospitals are full and there are many lines for people to buy oxygen for medical purposes.
