Guayanilla – The mayor of Guayanilla, Nelson Torres Yordán, joined his voice with that of his counterpart from Canóvanas, Lornna Soto, to demand the disbursement of funds for the Diagnosis and Treatment Center of his municipality.
“As I spoke with Governor Vázquez, the matter is in the hands of the Fiscal Supervision Board in order to proceed with the disbursement,” said the mayor.
The first municipal executive of Guayanilla demanded that the state government be diligent in delivering the funds assigned to his municipality that add up to $ 430 thousand to compensate for the losses they have had and in turn ensure their operations within this health emergency due to the Pandemic of the Covid-19.
“We want to know the date for the delivery of these funds already committed and of which only need to be disbursed to the municipalities that manage health centers,” stressed the mayor.
In addition, this same situation is being faced by 28 municipalities that administer clinics or CDTs, according to also lawyer Nelson Torres.
“The municipalities have not received funds from the resolution approved by the legislature to alleviate the economic situation of the country’s hospitals. According to the information that has emerged, private institutions have received funds for their operations, however, this has not been the case for health entities under the administrations of municipal governments, “he said.
The municipality of Guayanilla is currently one of the towns with the lowest percentage of infections in Coronavirus infections.
This, according to Mayor Torres Yordán, thanks to the efforts of his administration and the work carried out from his CDT.
“The tracking and sampling is carried out from our Center and its operation is vital to continue guiding and treating our people to reduce infections in Guayanilla, as well as to the adjacent towns,” concluded the southern leader.
