“If they continue to increase, we will have to close the city again, depending on how the growth goes. Since Monday I gave the instruction to tighten the filters that we have and logically we have to give it a few days to see if we stay up and if it continues to rise we will begin to close … no, it could be three months again, “he said.
The Municipality made an energetic call to the population to do their part and not “lower their guard” on the issue of prevention because even in public spaces many people have been seen without mouth covers or keeping a healthy distance.
