The good news, one patient has been declared recovered, that is they no longer carry the virus and can no longer infect others. More are expected to be declared recovered in the coming days.

“We have 263 cases, many of them have already transmitted to others who will manifest symptoms in the following days if we let our guard down. Let’s remember that every infected person infects three others on average,” said Minister Salas.

“We have not reached the peak of the curve, we are several weeks away from reaching that, and when we can gradually relax the measures, but at this time it is very necessary that we follow the recommendations to stay home,” he added.

On that tone, The Minster of Security, Micheal Soto, expressed frustrations over reports that this Friday morning there were more people on the roads, like the Ruta 27, the Circunvalacion and La Uruca.
