The official spoke on condition of anonymity due to regulations.
Colombia, the world’s third-largest producer of coca leaves, has struggled to contain the virus.
It has had only one death, of a man who contracted the virus while traveling to the United States, and two others have died, but the country has seen an increase in the number of people who have died from the virus and a spike in infections.
The country is now one of the top five countries worldwide with the highest death toll from the coronas, according to the World Health Organization.
