Guatemala has declared a state of "maximum alert" in four administrative regions, the country's President Alejandro Giammattei announced Sunday.
The alerts went into effect in the regions -- called departments -- of Guatemala, El Progreso, Sacatepéquez and San Marcos. It comes in response to the increase in coronavirus cases in those particular areas, the President said in an address to the nation.
The new measures will last for 15 days and include full-day curfews on Sundays, and from 6 p.m. until 5 a.m. the rest of the week. Vehicles with odd and even number plates are only allowed to drive on alternate days.
The entire country has been on a state of "high alert" since February 25.
Guatemala has so far registered 384 coronavirus-related deaths, with 9,845 people infected with the virus, according to Johns Hopkins University data.
