“Many understand that it is a delicate moment and that is why they should not go out to public places unless it is essential to do so. I also congratulate those who have complied with the health orders, that population that shows a level of understanding because it is a challenging country that depends of all,” Salas said.

The minister also stressed that when we get out of this health emergency our lives will not be the same again, since we will have to get used to a new way of living and in which regular hand washing will be key.
