Tapiche. The FECORITAYB, an organization that represents the 24 native and peasant communities, located in the province of Requena, in the Loreto region; has been promoting a solidarity chain in its social networks to get medicines, protective equipment and oxygen for people who, to date, do not receive the necessary help and are awaiting the action of the corresponding authorities.
The president of the FECORITAYB, Roberto Tafur, through a statement made on May 30, reported on the delicate situation of several community members who presented symptoms of COVID-19; but they were still not receiving attention. In addition, Tafur confirmed that the necessary measures had been taken to strengthen community surveillance and prevent the entry of outsiders without proper identification. However, so far they had no answer.
Only in the community of Santa Elena, on June 4, 16 people tested positive for COVID-19, of the 26 who were evaluated.
LA FECORITAYB, through its fanpage, makes constant publications that account for the precarious situation of the communities in the Tapiche and Blanco basins.
“Until today, the cases of infected and people with possible symptoms of COVID-19 in our communities is increasing, but to date we do not have enough resources to face this evil, that is why we go to the population in in general, to the good heart and generosity of all, to help us and collaborate with us, with our indigenous peoples.
