Over 1,000 coronavirus carriers take shuttles to vote

Election officials say 1,200 people who currently have the coronavirus have availed themselves of a special shuttle service to bring them to special voting booths, out of 6,700 carriers eligible to vote.

Another 250 voters are expected to use the service in the coming moments.

Among those in quarantine, just over 1,000 people have used a similar service, out of 22,000 voters who are in isolation.

There are nearly 15,000 people with the coronavirus in the country, most of them too young to vote. Most of the nearly 60,000 in quarantine are also not yet 18 years old.
