According to the head of state, the municipalities that are under observation due to an increase in the curve of cases and deaths are: Bogotá, Manizales, Armenia, Tunja, Barranquilla, Montería, Leticia and Pereira. Likewise, the cities under observation due to the increase in both cases and deaths and in ICU occupancy are Medellín, Cali, Santa Marta and Barranquilla. The Government’s recommendations for cities with an ICU occupancy greater than 85% consist of adopting a curfew between 6 pm and 5 am, and establishing the “pico y cédula”, a method to control the circulation of people according to the last digit of their identity document. As UCI occupancy decreases, restrictions on mobility will be less. (c) EFE Agency
