Mercosur country members agreed on Wednesday to share information and statistics on the coronavirus evolution as part of a common strategy destined to combat the pandemic, which included facilitating the return of ex-pats and ensuring the movement of goods among the block.

Decisions were made during a video conference coordinated from Paraguay, currently chair of the group, and with the participation of host president Mario Abdo Benitez, Uruguay's Luis Lacalle Pou, Brazil's Jair Bolsonaro and Argentine foreign minister Felipe Solá.
