Rumors began circulating on social networks last night that an Italian person would have caused a stir at the San Juan Bautista Hospital for having become the first carrier of Coronavirus in our province and in the country.

Given these rumors, from the Ministry of Health came to clarify that such information is completely false.

It was a patient who entered the hospital with a picture of cough, nasal congestion and fever, but the spice was quickly cleared.

The man just did not present physical signs of a complicated condition or compatible with risk factors, they explained from the health portfolio.

Normal studies were performed and then sent to your home to rest.

No chaos

“This situation of suspicion did not mean any chaos in the hospital,” they explained. “Due to the characteristics of the picture and the epidemiological background, it did not enter into any protocol since it did not meet any of the criteria of a suspected case,” they added.

It is recommended to the population to ignore accounts in social networks that emit unreliable information and always look for the word from official sources to avoid falling into generalized panic.
