Bolivia became the latest country to top 100,000 total Covid-19 infections Sunday after authorities reported another 1,198 cases of novel coronavirus and 55 new virus-related deaths.
To date, 100,344 cases of Covid-19 have been identified in Bolivia, including 4,058 fatalities..
Despite the increase in cases, protesters are still taking to the streets in opposition to the government's decision to delay presidential elections.
Bolivia is currently being run by an interim government that formed after longtime President Evo Morales stepped down late last year. Elections have been postponed twice this year due to Covid-19.
Morales, who was in power for nearly 14 years, resigned last year following allegations of "serious irregularities" during presidential elections. He denied the allegations and declared himself the winner, but was forced to step down and leave the country.
He claimed the accusations against him are part of a coup by right-wing politicians and the armed forces, but his opposition maintains they are fighting for democracy and peace.
