Former president Evo Morales Ayma, asked to different sectors of the population to respect the quarantine established by the current government and recommended by the World Health Organization to avoid Covid-19 infections.
“According to the latest results, we must understand that Bolivia has the highest death rate from coronavirus in South America, that is a real concern,” said Kawsachun Coca radio.
“What is quarantine for …? Quarantine allows little movement, little contact, and if there is little contact there is little contagion and that benefits everyone,” he said.
However, the state authorities’ claim that it must also accompany real support policies to prevent people from running out of food, in this sense ratify their proposal that the armed forces should support the population with the implementation of popular pots. , “Let the soldiers be able to prepare common pots and approach to support the population with food.”
As an example of what is already practiced, Morales publishes on his Twitter account at: @evoespueblo The quarantine without food assistance is desperate. So the people took initiatives: in Plan 3000 they prepared common pots; In San Julián, young people made bread to share in neighborhoods and thus in other regions. They are signs that people need state attention
On the other hand, he suggested to the municipal authorities, and regional leaders, the exchange of products “the Barter” can be put into practice to support a varied diet.
“In some communities they are recovering the experience of the past, such as commerce, barter, which is surprising, in the community of Raqaypampa in Cochabamba they determined that only fuel enters from outside, the rest of the food is of their own production, so they hold control better, therefore I believe that the best weapon to face this pandemic is with solidarity and empathy, recovering those traditions, therefore it would be good to exchange products to face the lack of food, ”he added.
The exmandatario, hopes that at the initiative of the communities and municipalities, they can exchange traditional or typical products of each region in this way diversify food, “Morochata, Cows and the highlands have potato production, the Tropic has bananas, citrus, would good to exchange ”he maintained.
