The country has seen a surge in Covid cases, as a record high of almost 7,000 daily infections and 47 deaths were reported by authorities on Sunday.
Protestors are demanding a faster rollout of the Government’s vaccination programme which they say has been far too slow.
One protester told The Associated Press: “We are fed up with the queues, the shortages. That’s why I’m here.”
Another protestor told the BBC: “We can’t take it anymore. There is no food, there is no medicine, there is no freedom. They do not let us live.
