Dota is a small canton, with 7,800 inhabitants, 3,500 of whom live in the center and the rest scattered. The density is 18.48 inhabitants per square kilometer.

For the minister, the fact that so much time passed without contagion and now only one appears, shows “that they have done well.”

The news of the contagion in Dota took Mayor Leonardo Chacón by surprise, who states that he was always aware that it could happen at any time.

“We became aware of the first COVID-19 case in Dota today (Wednesday) at the press conference. We continue the same, with more force, we are making a call for solidarity, we show that it can be done and now we will continue to apply the protocols with more vehemence. We do not know who the infected person is or how they became infected, but we do want them to know that they are not alone, there is a united community here, ”said the mayor.
