by Adriaan Alsema May 6, 2020

President Ivan Duque‘s plans to lift restrictions of almost one third of Colombia while 40% of the country’s doctors and nurses are considering to resign.

The president on Tuesday announced he sought to relax restrictions on more sectors of the economy to the despair of the Colombian Medical Federation (FMC) and other experts.

According to Vice-President Marta Lucia Ramirez, the relaxations of the lockdown that would take force on May 12 would apply to 15 million people, almost a third of Colombia’s population.

FMC vice-president Carolina Corcho stressed that Duque couldn’t possibly protect these people as the vast majority of healthcare workers don’t even have personal protection equipment.
