“Opening the borders at this time would mean starting to have centers of transmission in all over the country and it would be a matter of days to have an expanded community transmission scenario.

“I understand the concern of the tourism sector, I think that the most cautious thing would be – in time and if the curve of the increase in cases allows it – start to see how we do with domestic tourism,” said Salas.

The tourism sector must carry out a protocol to resume its activities, which must be endorsed by the Ministry of Health.
