President Martín Vizcarra said there were signs that the worst had passed.
"Peru has already entered a plateau in the curve that registers the expansion of the epidemic," Vizcarra said. The curve "is not flat, but irregular, but the trend is towards a gradual and slow decline."
Peru has been in lockdown for 72 days, paralysing the economy. The health system is on the brink of collapse, with public hospitals facing drastic equipment shortages.
