Gender Distancing: Some Latin American Countries Taking Radical Steps


In a strong initiative to combat COVID-19, some of the Latin American nations have taken a step to promote social distancing, and that is to separate men and women. However, the Colombian capital Bogotá, Panama, and Peru, in particular, have seen mixed results after they segregated men and women in this time of the pandemic. The said three places in Latin America all experimented with the probability of allowing men and women “to go out on different days to buy essentials” such as medicine and food. The main objective is to limit the number of people going out on the streets at any time while the COVID-19 continues to sweep, not just Latin America but the whole world, as well. Panama, having the highest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Latin America, was the first country to introduce the gender distancing measure.
