Covid Treatment In Bolivia

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a newly discovered coronavirus. Most people who fall sick with COVID-19 will experience mild to moderate symptoms and recover without special treatment. The virus that causes COVID-19 is mainly transmitted through droplets generated when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or exhales. These droplets are too heavy to hang in the air, and quickly fall on floors or surfaces. This country of 11.35 million has 4,481 cases with 189 deaths. Trinidad is located in the eastern region of Beni with 581 of the total cases and 41 deaths.  The country has been under a total lockdown for nearly two months reports U.S. News & World Report’s Monica Machicao and Carlos Vargas with Daniel Ramos. The region of Beni sits in the northeast of Bolivia, the country’s second largest “department” is comprised primarily of tropical lowlands with a population of just under half a million. Trinidad is the capital and a place where coronavirus is taking more lives. Bolivia, although a developing nation, has seen a miraculous economic growth over the past two decades as the nation’s poverty rate declined from over 60% in 2003 to 34.6% today. This pandemic, of course, threatens that direction.
