HeadlineJul 29, 2020

Argentina reported a record 120 new COVID-19 deaths Monday, bringing the country’s death toll to over 3,100. Argentine authorities are warning of possible shortages of intensive care unit beds in hospitals in and around Buenos Aires.

In Guatemala, the government has begun reopening the economy after months of strict coronavirus restrictions, despite a continuing surge in COVID-19 cases and nearly 1,800 deaths. Guatemala’s borders will remain closed, but many industries have resumed operations, public transportation will gradually start running, and shopping centers and restaurants were allowed to reopen this week.
