Peru COVID-19 outbreak: Health workers demand more protection

Peruvian healthcare workers protest against a lack of protective gear as the country faces the worst coronavirus outbreak in South America.

Healthcare workers in Peru have been protesting against a lack of personal protective equipment.

Peru has one of the highest rates of coronavirus infections in South America.

The government has rushed to test more than 200,000 people, build makeshift hospitals and fly doctors around the country, but many say it is still not doing enough to protect front-line workers.
