POSITIVE CASES OF CONCERN
Francisco Albertos has released the data of Pinoso, currently there are active 63 positive cases by Covid-19, in the Hospital there are hospitalized 4 people, one in ICU and has registered a deceased. He has also explained that of the 5 outbreaks that have been detected, the majority have been of a social nature, he has also mentioned that most of the cases are being mild or asymptomatic. According to these figures, for Albertos “the situation in Pinoso is a concern, it is important to continue with the measures and in the private sphere to maintain closed groups where you can control the transmission”, and added that “these measures are preventative and seek to not have to confine people”. Hence, they must continue for another 15 days, since even though the incidence has stabilized, the number of cases in the population is still very high. Maintaining these measures aims not to confine the municipality, a measure that could demand the Conselleria, but that according to the mayor of Pinoso “we must avoid in order to maintain the economy and normality of our municipality "and added “We do everything they ask us to favor the citizenship"” Albertos for his part also affirmed that “we do not want to confine, we must live with the virus, but be aware and adopt the measures” and added that the purpose is to continue with the activities, culture or education and that for this it is necessary to create safe spaces using as an example the schools, where all the protocols have been adopted to prevent the spread of the virus.
