Keiko Fujimori criticizes the “inexplicable” confinement at Easter for Christians

The candidate for the Presidency of Peru for the far-right Popular Force party, Keiko Fujimori, has criticized the restrictions imposed to stop coronavirus infections during Holy Week, a “nonsense” for Christians who want to “live their faith.”

“The decision to lock us up at Easter is a new nonsense by the president. Once again, his ideological biases do a lot of damage to Peruvians,” Fujimori said in a video posted on social networks.

The government of the interim president Francisco Sagasti announced last Wednesday a package of measures with a view to the Holy Week festivities that includes the suspension of interprovincial transport by land and air.

For Fujimori, depriving “all Catholics and Christians of living” their faith “at such a difficult time is an inexplicable blow.” “But not only that. There are thousands of Peruvians who saw these days as an opportunity to offer their products and services, but they have also been locked up,” she indicated.

“President Sagasti, there is still time. Open Easter. Do not enclose our faith, do not enclose our work,” Keiko Fujimori has appealed.

This Saturday the Peruvian Ministry of Health has reported that the milestone of 50,000 deaths since the start of the pandemic has been surpassed. The new epidemiological balance of the Andean country has registered 5,334 new cases and 188 deaths from coronavirus this Saturday, bringing the total of positive cases since the beginning of the pandemic to 1,460,779 and 50,085 deaths.
