The Secretary of Health, Lorenzo González, estimated that deaths from Covid-19 will exceed a thousand by Thanksgiving. Health today reported 20 additional deaths from coronavirus.
“Today 20 deaths are reported. We know they are from previous days, but they are reported today. Obviously we’re going to hit over a thousand deaths before Thanksgiving. We continue to lose lives in relation to Covid and I have been clear in relation to the importance of discipline, the use of masks, avoiding large groups and now that we are close to Thanksgiving, Christmas, Three Kings Day ”, expressed González. “We don’t have the vaccine and when you get the vaccine, you need time to generate antibodies.”
200,000 more people to the Vital Plan
On the other hand, the secretary confirmed that the process to enter 200,000 people into the Vital Plan, the government’s health plan, is ready. This group of people are the ones who cannot have a private plan, but previously did not qualify for the public health plan.
“We are awaiting final approval and we can add 200,000 lives to the project. Many people need such a health plan. The two things that I want to see accomplished is the continuity of the Covid projects and everything that is being done to insert the 200,000 lives in Vital ”, he declared.
