Public access to cinemas, casinos, theaters and gymnasiums will be limited to 40% of the reception capacity of the premises concerned, the government said.

The reopening of theaters and sports halls had been demanded for weeks.

Open-air theaters will be authorized to receive the public up to 60% of their capacity.

On the other hand, bars, pubs, nightclubs, karaoke bars will have to remain closed, said the government, which also recalled the obligation to wear a mask.

According to the new standards, from next week, the capacity of shopping centers will increase to 60% and that of restaurants with an outdoor terrace to 70%, against 40% so far.

The Peruvian economy entered a recession in the second half of the year due to the lockdown which partly paralyzed economic activities between March and June.

According to the Central Bank, GDP fell 12.5% ​​in 2020 because of the impact of the pandemic on the economy.

Peru is one of the countries in the world with the highest death rate from Covid-19.

Since the start of the epidemic in March, Peru, a country of 33 million inhabitants, has recorded more than 36,200 deaths and 972,688 cases of contamination.
