For the fight against the pandemic to be effective, all citizens need to take precautionary measures and behave as if they already had COVID-19 in order to prevent others from becoming infected,
said on Monday.
Despite this, irresponsible behavior has been evidenced by part of the population that does not respect social distancing rules.
The minister said that taking measures to restrict activities is being evaluated in order to avoid more infections. For its part, the ministry is reinforcing the primary care level
—through visits and phone calls— to detect and quickly contact patients.
Regarding the situation in regions, she affirmed that the effort made by local authorities to face the pandemic will continue being supported.
