Paraguayans Protest Corruption in Asunción After Healthcare System Collapse

Around 1000 protesters returned to the streets of Asunción for a 3rd day to demand the resignation of the president following a collapse in the healthcare system of Paraguay, with elective surgeries such as appendix removal halted altogether and medicine at a critically low supply. After gathering in front of the ex-president’s house, an avid supporter of the current government, demonstrators were tear-gassed and forced to disperse.
