SUSPECT CASE CONTACTS ARE ADMITTED AT HOME

Of the 5,000 cases we have had, in round numbers, more than 115,000 people have been transferred to isolation centers, of which about 4.6% have been positive, the Prime Minister explains. But this, and the accumulated experience, allow us to say that we can apply an isolation protocol to a contact of a positive case.

That does not mean that you will be left at home without care, and you will have exceptions, among them, the elderly, people whose behavior does not guarantee that they can have responsible behavior, among others.

A strengthening of the program that has to do with epidemiology and microbiology will be applied. Work will be done on expanding the network of microbiology laboratories. The strategy is aimed at allowing all provinces to have a laboratory.
