Reiterating that the rebound in Covid-19 cases is within what was expected, the director of the Metropolitan Health Region, Israel Cedeño, warned that the population has unfortunately relaxed in compliance with the rules to stop the virus.
recalled that Health personnel continue on the streets to diagnose cases and that it is important that the population take care of itself because otherwise the cases will continue to increase.
"More than 21 days have passed since the last large openings and flexibilities, and that is why by this time a rebound in cases was expected," Cedeño
said in statements to Telemetro.
He stressed that they are still within the expected rebound, but that the population needs to return to the behavior of two months ago, which was well aware of the risk of contagion.
"We have to stop having parties, use the masks properly and follow the instructions to control these cases and prevent this rebound from having a very negative effect, not only in the metropolitan region but also at the national level."
Yesterday, in the epidemiological report, the Ministry of Health (Minsa
) reported that 887 new positive cases were detected, for a cumulative total of 143,352.
According to the Minsa
, 7,093 tests were applied to detect infected people, for a percentage of positivity of 12.5%.
