Peru’s Energy & Mines Minister Susana Vilca said that Peru's miners are on track to resume operating at 100% capacity by the end of July after the government ended a nationwide coronavirus lockdown last week. Vilca told reporters "We can see by the power demand that operations are gradually returning to normal, al]though there's always a certain number of infected workers as we don't know how the virus will behave. We're confident that production will be back at 100% by the end of July, and we'll see a major recovery by December."

Peru, the hardest-hit country in the region after Brazil, has reported 316,448 coronavirus cases and 11,204 deaths from coronavirus to date. At least 1,000 mineworkers tested positive for the novel coronavirus at operations including Antamina, Chinalco's Toromocho, Nexa Resources, and Minsur.
