Daniel Rivera assured that they have sufficient personnel and supplies to combat a possible wave of the disease that began in March 2020.
“All the Covid personnel are hired, all the vaccines are present, we have all the antigen tests and sufficient PCR. Likewise, all the medicines bought until next year, the most important thing is that we have enough vaccines », he said.
