Cofan in the time of Covid

Luckily, so far, there are no signs of the Covid-19 pandemic in Cofan territory. However, Cofanes are worried about it spreading quickly if and when it does arrive because of the communal culture of Cofanes. Also, tuberculosis is endemic in many Cofan communities, so their lungs are already weak. So far there does not seem to be active contamination in any of the villages. Cofanes would like to encourage donation for emergency funds when and if the virus hits their communities. On the positive side, the lock down has temporarily paused a lot of the activities that threaten Cofan territory such as oil drilling, agriculture expansion, and mining.
