A 71-year-old woman died in Santana do Livramento from Covid-19, municipal authorities reported on Thursday.
The test result came On Wednesday at 8 p.m. The woman also had cancer so the test had to be waited to confirm her death from the virus.
The Minister of Public Health is located on Thursday in the area where he traveled concerned about the possibility of outbreaks on the dry border with Brazil.
The danger is even greater in cities like Rivera that border Brazil only across a street.
Alvaro Delgado: Today Minister Salinas is in Rivera, the president of ASSE was also on the dry border with Brazil these days. The issue with the dry border with Brazil has to be cities where it is impossible to put a fence in the middle. It's a street.
In Quaraí there is at least one bridge where you can make checks, the same thing happens in Rio Branco but in the Chuy something similar happens as in Rivera.
