Coronavirus: Salta provided for the mandatory use of the chinstrap on the street


The governor of Jump, Gustavo Sáenz, announced this Monday night that the use of chinstrap on public roads it will be required throughout the province from the next week. Like his peers in Jujuy and La Rioja, he considered this to be an additional preventive measure to protect healthy citizens from asymptomatic patients from coronavirus.

During a Facebook broadcast, the official stated: “I have made the decision that the chinstrap is mandatory, although many do not like it, because we are taking care of all of them. “

Then, he referred to the voices that previously spoke out against this prevention measure. “The truth is that we are not sure if it is the best, but we have seen that in the places where the infected have been used, they were much lesslike the Czech Republic or South Korea, and the World Health Organization is already saying that it might be good to use them. “

“When you do the analysis with common sense, if there are asymptomatic patients, it is better to have a chinstrap“Saenz continued, adding:” I have been proposing for a week that it is not an obligation, but rather a precaution, that those who can do it at home do it, that it is not difficult, that there are a lot of ways of making them. “

Thus, encouraged to make chinstraps at home, and maintained that carrying an additional barrier both in the mouth and in the nose “will protect you more than having nothing.”

As of Monday the 13th, when the isolation begins to relax, the chinstrap will be mandatory, because I believe that the measures in hard and difficult times have to be strict and must be respected, for the good of all “, detailed the governor.

Finally, he warned that the fight against Covid-19 “is just beginning,” and called on citizens to manage conscientiously so as not to promote the circulation of the disease. “Those who didn’t measure the magnitude of this did very badly, so let’s try to be disciplined, orderly and supportive, “he concluded.
