In these difficult times, of confinement, we are still present to help you with any need that may arise. Remember to always take the precautions that we are told.
It is terrible that the coronavirus has already killed many people around the world. Although the majority of the cases were originally concentrated in the Chinese city of Wuhan, the virus left the country and has spread to 187 countries, including Spain. Specifically, the virus continues exponentially with its expansion outside China, with major foci in Italy, the United States, Spain and Germany.
In Spain, the sum of those infected is very large and, for the moment, it seems that the state of alarm will last until April 11.
Decalogue on how to act in case of having symptoms of COVID-19, according to Health:
- SELF-INSULATE: In a single-use room with a window, keeping the door closed, and, if possible, an individual bathroom. If it is not possible: keep the safety distance of 2 meters with the rest of the people and extreme hygiene.
- STAY COMMUNICATED: Have a phone available to inform of the needs that arise and you can maintain communication with your loved ones.
