In addition, he called on religious leaders to persuade the population to respect health measures.

With the “controlled reopening” that starts today and for the rest of the month, economic activities are not affected by whether an area is under yellow or orange alert, but can be if the central government implements restrictions for an area or areas in the event of any outbreaks.
