Regarding the increase of 37 cases in the last 24 hours, the Minister of Health, Daniel Salas, explained that it takes between 4 and 5 for symptoms to appear, attributed the single high increase to the irresponsible actions of last Friday when many were out shopping, ahead of the stricter stay at home and vehicular restrictions that are in place for this week.

“Just before the vehicle restriction (on Friday) we saw an inappropriate behavior of agglomeration in stores and that causes us to have a significant increase in cases.

“We are entering the final phase of Easter, I know there is tiredness, boredom, but this is a unique time in history.

“We have to be persistent, we have to maintain discipline in handwashing, not kiss each other, disinfect surfaces, avoid public places. Those measures make a world of difference,” stressed the Minister.
