Peru reported on Wednesday 288,477 COVID-19 infections after testing detected 3,264 new cases in the previous 24 hours, and the death toll rose to 9,860, said the Health Ministry.
Currently, 11,108 patients are hospitalized around the country, including 1,212 on ventilators in intensive care units.
As Peru gears up to go from a generalized lockdown to local quarantine, which depends on the transmission rate in a given region, President Martin Vizcarra on Tuesday called on the public to take a responsible approach to preventive measures.
The lockdown expired on June 30. Most Peruvians resumed their daily activities on Wednesday, but three new requirements are still in place: using face masks, social distancing and washing hands frequently.
