Venezuela introduces 7 for 7 system to reopen its businesses
Despite new highs in daily cases of COVID-19 detected this week (July 6), Venezuela has some of the lowest numbers of infections being reported in all Latin-America. And the country is easing out of quarantine with a unique method to try to put its economy back on track.
Venezuela is reopening under what's being called the 7 for 7 system. Brick and mortar stores are allowed to open for 7 days. Following that they're closed for 7 days. In addition to the one week on, one week off rule, they must follow strict sanitary measures, including taking visitors' temperatures and requiring people to wear masks.
