My significant other lives in Barahona with her family that I have been looking after for five years, and tells me that all the buses from the capital have been suspended. There seem to have been a few cases of the virus there, not sure how many. The city market is open from 8 to 10 AM and the supermarket closes at 4 PM. The streets are colsed and they are arresting people. Some people called periodistas run about taking photos of peope in the street with the idea of arresting them. Prices for food are high, no one is working or has any money. She used to sell refrescos and yaroa at her front door, now that is forbidden. A side door to the house broke off its hinges and she commissioned another one made of steel, but does not know how to get it from the shop up the hill to where she lives.
