Peru's cases of coronavirus surpass 200,000

Lima, June 10 (RHC)-- Peru's Health Ministry has confirmed coronavirus cases have surpassed 200,000, with 5,738 deaths.  A spokesman for the ministry said there were now a total of 203,736 coronavirus cases.

The country registered its first case on March 6 and has seen a surge amid a rigorous testing regime, but also high levels of poverty and informal labor complicating self-isolation efforts.

Some Peruvian hospitals have run out of oxygen to treat COVID-19 patients.
