(TELESUR) – According to Ilopango Mayor’s Office, the municipality would need about 8,000 additional graves.
“We do not have space to be able to attend the call of the population, to be able to bury other people,” Perdomo said. Ilopango health authorities reported over 200 COVID-19 cases and 59 deceased due to the virus. However, it also registered about 117 deaths with similar patterns.
The Mayor’s Office requested from San Martin and San Salvador municipalities for burial space in their graveyards, given the fatalities upsurge.
The functionary said masks use and social distancing would be mandatory as precautionary measures facing the virus spreading.
