Bogota opposes Duque's plan to restart Colombia's manufacturing industry next week

by Adriaan Alsema April 22, 2020

The mayor of Colombia’s capital Bogota said Tuesday she will not reopen the construction and manufacturing sectors next week as proposed by President Ivan Duque, but will do so gradually.

Duque said Monday he would allow the reopening of the sectors that employ some 5 million people, adding on Tuesday that local and regional government would be responsible for monitoring compliance with biosecurity protocols.

“Not possible”
According to Bogota Mayor Claudia Lopez, opening both sectors at once is “not possible” and that she would gradually authorize the reopening of factories.

It is not possible to reactivate the construction and manufacture sectors in Bogota at the same time on Monday. The first generates 560,000 trips per day and the second 567,000 trips per day! Both of these would greatly increase the health risk for workers.
