The increase in COVID-19 cases has been slight, "the problem is that it is being gradual and permanent," said the Minister of Health.
The Minister of Health, Luis Sucre
, announced that an increase in COVID cases is currently being observed in about four districts of the province of Chiriquí, in response to which he calls on the population to maintain the measures of biosecurity.
“From what we have noticed today is that we have four districts that were already going down and have started to go up again, those districts are David, Bugaba, Barú and Dolega, we have to pay a little more attention, we want to ask The Chiricanos who are part of that district that we take care of ourselves, that we not lower our guard, that we increase and reinforce the biosafety regulations, and it calls our attention that these are precisely places where there is greater commercial movement in the province and it is precisely where The cases are getting a little higher for us,” Sucre
He pointed out that although the increase has been slight, “the problem is that it is being gradual and permanent, that is, it is being constant and that is not good, that turns us on a yellow light and tells us that we have to be alert with these districts.”
He added that in this situation, the Minsa
, together with the inter-institutional team and the private company, will proceed to implement strategies to stop this increase in COVID-19 cases.
"The team of the province is proposing some strategies this afternoon, they this week will begin to walk in their strategies, to reinforce their teams, which will be doing night operations, mainly in the commercial part, together with a team from the private company that promised that it would work with the Ministry of Health and with the inter-institutional team to try to control this increase,” he added.
