Through a video on social networks, the interim president of Bolivia, Jeanine Áñez Chávez, announced that the last week her staff team tested positive for coronavirus, so a test was done, which came out positive.

He also said that he will remain in quarantine for 14 days until a second test is carried out to corroborate his health.
Áñez temporarily took office after the October 2019 elections were canceled due to irregularities that sparked violent protests against Evo Morales, who resigned in November after almost 14 years in power and after the police and military chiefs withdrew his support. The general elections in Bolivia, initially scheduled for May 3, were deferred without a date due to the health emergency. Given this, the Supreme Electoral Tribunal (TSE) has suggested to Congress that the electoral appointment take place on September 6.
