Salas thanked the many who have followed the recommendations of social distancing and hygiene by constantly washing their hands, as well as cleaning the surfaces they touch and following the protocols when coughing and sneezing, as all of this has allowed the country to maintain the number of positive cases manageable.

“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.
