Peru recorded 7,734 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday, its highest daily increase so far, according to the country’s Health Ministry.
That raises the country’s total to 447,624 cases.
The ministry also reported 221 new related deaths, the highest one-day jump — raising Peru’s death toll to 20,228.
The rise in cases and deaths come a day after Peru’s Prime Minister Pedro Cateriano, the Cabinet chief, lost a vote of confidence in Parliament, a blow to President Martin Vizcarra while his government attempts to slow the spread of the virus.
