He mentioned that among the security measures that have been exercised, 7 temporary suspensions stand out, of which 2 were due to crowding of people, another due to tobacco smoke and one due to alcohol to minors, 2 insurances of supplies have also been carried out, as well as security measures for establishments that did not comply with health regulations.
