Peru's President Martin Vizcarra said that since October, the country is partially entering the fourth phase of reactivation of the economy, which includes permission for rail and air passenger transport.
"From October, we will partially start the fourth phase, because we need to be careful... and maintain progress in reducing the number of hospitalized patients and deaths from COVID-19," the politician said during a press conference published on his Facebook page.
During this phase, the country will be allowed to transport passengers by rail, as well as air traffic, including international flights.
