Finance Minister Nelson Fuentes told a news conference the measures would only apply to people or businesses affected by the pandemic, which has pummeled financial markets and upended life around the globe.

For a three-month period, the affected will be exempt from payments for electricity, water, mortgages and personal loans, credit cards, telephones, cable and internet, among other services, Fuentes said.

Once the three months are up, payment of the charges accrued will be spread over two years, without risk of default or damage to creditworthiness. Nor will they face interest charges.
