Colombia's capital Bogota, the South American country's coronavirus epicenter, will raise its health alert level and impose a "strict quarantine," the city's mayor.    

Beginning Monday, the city "will begin an orange alert with the intensive care system on red alert," said mayor Claudia Lopez.

The capital city of eight million people has recorded 42,000 coronavirus cases, amounting to 32 percent of Colombia's 134,000 infections, and 950 deaths.
