Peru Limits Movement by Gender to Stem Coronavirus Spread: BBC

Peru has begun enforcing strict new measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus disease, restricting public movement by gender, BBC reports.

Men can only leave home on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays; women can do so on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. On Sundays, no-one is allowed out.

Panama introduced similar restrictions earlier this week.

Peru has recorded more than 1,400 confirmed cases of Covid-19 and 55 related deaths.

President Martín Vizcarra said on Thursday that previous control measures had given good results "but not what was hoped for".

Calling for an "extra effort to control this disease", he said the new gender-based restrictions should halve the number of people circulating in public at any one time.
