From the Ministry of Health, a call is made to citizen responsibility, so that people who have symptoms compatible with Covi-19 such as fever, cough and muscle fatigue, do not go out and contact health centers.
Already last Friday, the Minister of Health, Jesus Fernández Sanz, explained that “there are many outbreaks due to social and family encounters and we want to make a call to responsibility”, stressing that there are numerous cases in which people with coronavirus symptoms are circulating on the street, and reiterating that “they must contact healthcare professionals and follow their instructions ”. In that sense, he stressed that the Administration must be relentless with people who do not do their duty and announced that the Government of Castilla-La Mancha is working on punitive measures for this type of irresponsibility.
