The Ministry of Health, for its part, stated the following on its social networks:

“Daniel Salas continues to be our Minister of Health and as an institution we continue to work hard with our captain. What is certain is that our boss is going to take a vacation period until January 17 to share with his family. Deserved rest!”

During all this time, he has not only led the preparation of the country for the care of the first patients, but all the measures that the Executive Power launched to contain and mitigate the spread of the virus during the first months.

One of the most difficult moments Salas has experienced in this entire process was the death of his father, due to causes related to covid-19. Eduardo Salas Rodríguez passed away on September 16.

Throughout his management, rumors of his resignation have circulated several times, which even Salas himself has had to clarify in different interviews with the media.
