Iquitos: The first peruvian city that could have gained immunity against to Covid-19 according to studies
On the 15th of July 2020, the Regional Directory of Health in Loreto presented preliminary results from a study conducted in Iquitos. 71% of the population of this specific region was infected with the new coronavirus. From the 13th to the 18th of July there will be testing over 700 people at random in the districts of Iquitos, San Juan, Punchana and Belen. These will all be conducted with the rapid testing method. The results have yet to be posted by the Registry of investigations and health (PRISA) from the institute of National Health (INS) but have revealed relevant data findings. According to the study, Iquitos has become a beneficiary as it has gained protection against the virus. Additionally, it will be the first city in the world that has reached the high percentile needed to claim immunity. This could make it one of the safest, if not the safest destination in the world.

The Service on board - From Andrea and Oscar, to the chefs and guide - everyone was outstanding from a customer service perspective and the service was comparable or better…
