As part of this initiative, the buffoons visited the markets of this city of 130,000 inhabitants to encourage them to avoid crowds and to respect containment measures.

With 192 confirmed cases, Puno is one of the regions least affected in Peru by Covid-19 disease. The city is located at 3827 meters above sea level, on the shores of Lake Titicaca, which Peru shares with Bolivia.

Peru has more than 84,490 cases of coronavirus contamination for 2,390 deaths.
