Minister’s regaño

Minister Salas took a few minutes to scold each one and every one of us, though not all are responsible, but collectively as a society, we have to take this pandemic more seriously and every one of us does our part in keeping it under control.

Dr. Salas asked rhetorically of those who still do not believe this pandemic is real or that it should be taken lightly, who are tired of the constant browbeating, the scoldings, the reminders, the restrictions, and so on, where would we be today if we hadn’t done so?

According to Salas, the largest number of infections is not from people going to work, to bring home a livelihood, but from the partying, the large get-togethers, the non-believers who refuse to heed to the measures and so on.
