Coronavirus: March 15, 2020

Sunday, March 15 is the day that the Ministry of Health confirmed the most cases, that now stands at 35.

Lowering the number is the responsibility of EVERYONE.

Given the non-compliance to stay home and from crowds, the Ministry of Health ordered a total closure of bars, clubs and casinos. The total closure applies to the Parque de Diversiones amusement park.

On Monday, March 16, 350 educational centers (schools) will remain closed, both due to lack of water and due to links with COVID-19 cases. The list is dynamic and constantly updated.
