“What we have is that people who come from abroad, from Europe, Africa, the United States or Canada, they would have to notify if they were exposed to a person with this disease,” he declared.  

González Galindo pointed out that the main symptoms of this disease are: temperature above 38 degrees, swollen glands and possible skin irritation with small blisters.
