Later it was indicated that Cifuentes could be an organ donor, but this was not the case, since, according to the doctors, the patient would have covid-19. However, Jhonatan’s relatives affirm that this is not the case.

According to a relative of the 18-year-old, minutes after the conversation with the doctor, they were informed that their relative could no longer be a donor because he was a suspect for covid-19.
