The Honduran government also authorizd  the institutions of Sinager to continue with the qualification of areas of massive lodging to attend suspicious cases of COVID-19.  Besides, it could carry on actions of response for the supply of inputs in the hospital network and the facilitation of food in the most vulnerable homes of the country.


As part of the measure, all activities in public institutions, as well as companies, schools, and universities will cease. The population will be able to buy things​ such as food and medicine in the morning. The Sinager regime will transport goods and the safeguarded citizens will be allowed to circulate out of the defined schedules.

Because of the extension of the quarantine and other restrictive measures, various popular movements are demanding that the president provide food to social sectors that depend economically on informal work.

So far, Honduras registered 661 positive COVID-19 cases, 61 deaths, and 79 recoveries.
