The state governor recognized the effort made by Sinaloan society to heed the call to stay at home since there are fewer people circulating in the cities, but it is necessary to reinforce these actions much more, avoid crowds and above all, ignore the Fake news or rumors circulating on social networks, as they have created a lot of psychosis.
