A Peruvian mayor was caught in what seems to be a less than desirable position as he was caught by the local police violating the South American state’s curfew measures.Jaime Rolando Urbina Torres, the mayor of the town of Tantará,obviously thought little of the quarantine measures and went to the local bar to drink with friends.
When he was caught by the police, he was drunk: but not only was he drunk, but he pretended to be a corpse, a casualty of the coronavirus, and was pictured lying inside a casket.
The mayor of the little town have been frequently pointed out by his very own constituents recently for failing to meet with the current standards of public hygiene, as he was well known for not taking the current crisis seriously.
The locals have been put on the nationwide lockdown measures for 66 days, but the citizens of the town have complained that Torres notoriously spent eight days in his own town since the lockdown, without providing the necessary bureaucratic measures to help with the administration of the policies.
He had met these criticisms with loud invocations and angry remarks against the town hall meeting convened earlier this month.
He is also currently accused of not taking the necessary background checks on people entering the town from the outside, wherein it is deemed dangerous as the South American continent itself is in the thick of the pandemic whereas other continents have begun to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
South America now suffers from 2.1million cases of coronavirus, a staggering statistic even compared to Europe, the original epicenter with their record of 1. 9 million infections. Deaths in the continent have been increasing at an alarming rate, with Peru suffering 104.
020 infection cases with 3,024 deaths.Peru is now considered to be amongst the top when it comes to the growth rate for numbers of deaths, in it which includes Brazil and Mexico, topped by Russia.
In total, there are now more than 5million cases of coronavirus confirmed worldwide after the WHO reported the single-largest daily increase of the pandemic Wednesday at 106,000. The mayor’s antics come at a most unwelcome and untimely moment.
