The creator of 31 Minutes, Armando Jofré, died of coronavirus.
Juan Carlos Bodoque, Tulio Triviño, Raúl Guantecillo and Policarpo, among others, have been left without their 44-year-old “father”.
The death of the Chilean artist was announced through the same Twitter account of the 31 Minutes program.
With his craft and art generously delivered, Armando was a fundamental piece in the creation of our characters. In these painful moments, a hug to his family and another to heaven, wishing him eternal life. You will always be with us. 🖤

Outside of 31 Minutes, Armando Jofré, who died from the coronavirus, also did personal projects.
Various media have reported that he made a puppet for his niece, who was teaching online.
31 Minutes is a Chilean television series owned by Álvaro Díaz, Pedro Peirano and Juan Manuel Egaña.
Made with puppets, the program focuses on a news program, whose presenter is Tulio Treviño.
The notes that are presented in the program are educational, without losing sight of comedy and even criticism of the authorities.
