We present the results of the QuALES task, which addresses the problem of Extractive Question Answering from texts. For both training and evaluation we use the QuALES corpus, a corpus of Uruguayan media news about the Covid-19 pandemic and related topics. We describe the systems developed by seven participants, all of them based on different BERT-like language models. The best results were obtained using the multilingual RoBERTa model pre-trained with SQUAD-Es-V2, with a fine tuning on the QuALES corpus.
