On Thursday, Bolivian authorities reported that the nine Bolivian departments had been affected.
The Bolivian government has released a special 20 (m) million US dollar aid package for the victims.
Almost 7,000 have been left homeless by the strong rains hitting the country over the past weeks.
Three people have died in the floods although some Bolivian news outlets are reporting as many as 50 deaths since the rainy season started in January.
The precarious Bolivian roads have been severely damaged in many parts due to mudslides and floods - making aid delivery difficult, it was mostly being done by helicopter and boat.
