"Hunger strike and protests in Bolivia to reject presidential elections' postponement."
The workers don't have the biosecurity equipment needed to approach the population to detect positive cases.
"We've been asking for protective equipment for months. We are still waiting for a response," the specialist said.
The hunger strike by Palos Blancos' medical team is taking place amid days of protest throughout the country against the coup-born regime lead by Jeanine Añez.
This Tuesday, there were demonstrations and road blockades in the states of El Alto, La Paz, Cochabamba, Santa Cruz, Tarija, Chuquisaca, and Pando. Protesters are urging the coup-born regime to guarantee democratic elections for this 2020.
