Hundreds in Asunción Protest for 5th Day Against Government Corruption

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Asunción for a 5th consecutive day to demand the resignation of president Marito Abdo after $1.6 billion disappeared from the healthcare budget, collapsing Paraguay’s ability to handle the COVID pandemic through overwhelmed hospitals, after elective surgeries including appendix removals were suspended and medicine fell to a critical low.

Demonstrators first assembled at the National Congress before proceeding to march to the Republican National Association, then rallying at the Microcenter of Asunción and dispersing afterward.
