This measure has not been promoted by the Ortega regime, despite being one of the key actions to prevent the spread of the virus and the disease, which has already left, according to the Ministry of Health (Minsa) count, 25 cases of Covid -19 and eight deceased.

Instead, the Ortega regime has promoted mass political and recreational activities, allowing sporting events and agglomeration among its supporters.

Since the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic was reported, the Ortega regime has not implemented concrete measures to prevent outbreaks in the country, which are already being registered according to complaints made by relatives of patients and specialists in the subject.
