The federative head died on Sunday afternoon after complications in his health due to the coronavirus.
Mourning in the world of South American football after the death of the president of the Bolivian Football Federation, Cesar Salinas, who could not win the battle against the coronavirus that had him hospitalized for more than a week in a clinic in La Paz.
Salinas died during the afternoon of this Sunday after complications in his health due to the aggressiveness of the disease, which damaged the lungs of the Bolivian federative head. The leader was reported to have been infected two weeks ago in one of the many meetings he held with Bolivian government authorities who also suffer from COVID-19.
A week ago he was admitted and days later he was intubated, since he had complications when breathing. This Sunday he lost the battle against the coronavirus and there are already more than a thousand deaths in Bolivia.
His wife, Inés Quispe, president of The Strongest, who is hospitalized recovering from her health, was also infected.
Salinas was president of the Bolivian Soccer Federation since 2018, when he was elected to restructure the institution that had more than five presidents since Carlos Chávez’s departure in 2015.
