Mayor Played COVID-19 Dead Body In Coffin To Avoid Arrest For Breaking Lockdown To Drink With Friends

So far, we don’t know where the drinking party took place as well as why the mayor could have a coffin ready nearby to pretend to be a COVID-19 dead body

There are a thousand ways people have used to avoid being caught for violating COVID-19 lockdown order. However, Jaime Rolando Urbina Torres’s method is arguably the most hilarious.

When the police came, he and his friends were having a drink despite the lockdown in Peru, the mayor of Tantara town put on a face mask on and hid in a coffin, pretending to be dead.

As the mayor, he was supposed to enforce the order, but ironically, Torres was among the violators. While the man laid in a coffin, his booze pals were believed to hide in drawers.

So far, we don’t know where the drinking party took place as well as why the mayor could have a coffin ready to be use.

Before this hilarious incident, the mayor has already been under fire for not being there when the COVID-19 pandemic struck Tantara. The locals said ever since the lockdown order was enforced, the mayor spent only eight days in town and has not come up with any safety measures to protect his subjects.

A video later emerged online showing him being questioned by the local police.

The town is now under a 66-day lockdown, ordered by the Peruvian center government. So far, Peru has had a total of 104,020 cases and 3,024 deaths, the 12th highest in the world.

Fear is spreading all over Peru that its markets might be the breeding-ground for the virus. In Lima, the country’s capital city, four out of five fruit merchants at a market tested positive for COVID-19. When the authority conducted tests at five other markets, they found out that more than half of people working there carried the virus.

The military and police force have been deployed to carry out tests at markets when Martín Vizcarra, the country’s president, refused to close these places.

Peru’s healthcare system finds it hard to keep up with the number of patients with COVID-19. In Lima alone, victims of the pandemic have taken up eight out of ten beds in the ICU.

Latin America is projected to be the latest epicenter of COVID-19 pandemic as the authority is struggling to keep people stay inside.

Till date, Brazil has been hit hard with over 250,000 cases, occupying the world’s third spot when it comes to the number of patients. In Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, the intensive care beds are now 85% full.
