This Monday, after President Nicolás Maduro announced that Caracas, along with six other entities, would have to quarantine in order to stop the advance of the coronavirus pandemic in the country, the streets of the capital were less crowded than usual.
Likewise, most of those who were outside made use of face masks. It was also appreciated that many shops were closed following the presidential instructions.
The measure enacted by the Executive involves restricting non-essential work activities, including trade – except for food and medicine – and invites citizens to stay within their homes as long as possible to activate social distancing, the method most effective in reducing the rate of covid-19 infections, as shown by simulations and studies published to date.
Orinoco Tribune with its limited resources, decided to do a round to show our readers with a time-lapse video the state of the streets today at El Paraiso neighborhood in Caracas.
