Se aplicarán pruebas aleatorias de la Covid-19 en las playas

Random Covid-19 tests will be applied on the beaches

With the opening of the beaches, the Ministry of Health (Minsa), in conjunction with the Joint Task Force, carries out operations in different parts of the country and it was announced that random tests will soon begin to be applied to detect possible asymptomatic cases of Covid-19 .
After seven months of restrictions to visit the beaches, the Government decided to lift the measure from this Saturday, October 24 and incidentally also ended the quarantine on Sundays.

Given this, the authorities prepared for a large influx of people to the beaches and rivers this weekend.

Israel Cedeño, director of the Metropolitan Health Region, said that on Saturday little presence of people was reported on Veracruz beach, at the same time without major incidents on compliance with sanitary regulations.

In the next few days we will be introducing swab sampling to people who will be coming. We are going to do random tests to detect someone who comes without symptoms, but has positivity, said Cedeño.

The official reiterated that the use of masks is mandatory in these places and that only people should take it off when they go to the beach can take it off.

It is a matter of getting used to it, all changes generate chaos, but we have to be aware that these changes are for the welfare of the population.

He reiterated that people can bring their food and that it is forbidden to consume and carry alcoholic beverages.
