The population of Tacna demands from the Peruvian Government the opening of the frontera land with Chile. Among the voices that are most raised by this request are the collective car drivers, the shopping centers of the Historic Center and Coronel Mendoza Avenue.
Since March 16, Peru closed its border and has only been open to humanitarian transfers and passage of loads. Javier Cabrera, spokesman for the international transport groups, explained due to the pandemic, 206 Peruvian cars and 157 Chilean cars stopped circulating.
The drivers suggest that the Peruvian and Chilean foreign ministries prepare to open the borders in a restricted way. In December Chile concludes its quarantine. “First, only the passage of groups should be allowed, with all the security protocols to prevent the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Cabrera.
For his part, the regional director of Health, Juan Cánepa, reported that the epidemiological curve of the virus in Tacna has decreased considerably, making a regrowth unlikely. He explained that the Peruvians who returned from Chile, for the most part, had already passed the stage of contagion of coronavirus.
The president of the Free Trade Zone, Aldo Fuster, agreed with the progressive opening of the border but warned that from Chile there are still no announcements or signs of a future opening of its borders.
