He added that hygiene and healthy distance recommendations are disseminated daily -in Spanish and mother tongue-, in places with a high concentration of people, to have a greater impact among the inhabitants of other municipalities in the region, who daily market their products services in the city.
He urged citizens not to trust themselves and keep their guard up to stop the chain of transmission of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, since the green traffic light does not mean that the danger of contagion is not present, so it is important to adopt a Responsible attitude, where the most important thing is to protect your own health and that of all the members of each family.
He highlighted the importance of this type of action, since it allows the timely detection of cases of undiagnosed asymptomatic carriers, with results within a few minutes, unlike the PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) or Reaction in Polymerase Chain, in which the patient must wait a margin of 24 to 48 hours, which significantly reduces the risk of infecting other people.
