The Metropolitan Health Region has already exceeded 9,000 active cases of Covid-19, with a significant increase in three days warns the director of the region Israel Cedeño.

Cedeño explained that the metropolitan area -the most populous in the country- is the one with the most active infections at the national level with 9,044, until  Thursday’s report.

He specified that on Monday the number of people with the virus was 7,700 and that three days later it rose to 9,044, which reflects a significant increase of more than a thousand cases.

“They are letting their guard down. It is the only explanation why we have so many cases because many are vaccinated,” said Cedeño.

Cedeño announced that the strategy of mobile swab stations, which was reactivated three weeks ago, will continue to support the fixed coronavirus sampling points of Megamall, Rod Carew Stadium, and Emilio Royo Stadium and also, in this way decongest the high demand in health centers.

On Friday, for the second consecutive day, the temporary stand located in the parking lots of the Explora Science and Art Center in Condado del Rey was enabled.

Temporary swab posts will be mobilized in the 23 districts of the region and they will be several times in the sectors where more cases are occurring.
