Rest of Latin America

    In response to the pandemic at least eight countries in the region have placed restrictions on accessing public information, by suspending the agencies and/or deadlines relating to the response to information requests. As well as the discussed cases of Brazil and Mexico, this includes Argentina, Bolivia, El Salvador, Honduras, Peru and the Dominican Republic. To clarify, then, the agencies responsible for guaranteeing the right of access to public information, while continuing to receive data requests online, need not, under these measures, adhere to any deadlines for responding to them.
