Medical Services Director Gómez Rodríguez debunks audio warning spreading online.
Miguel Cerna. – Rafael Gómez Rodríguez, Director of the Municipal Medical Services of Jocotepec denied that positive case of Coronavirus (Covid-19) were diagnosed in the city of San Juan Cosala. The City Council echoed Rodriguez and noted that four suspicious cases have been identified but the Jalisco Health Secretariat will determine their status.
Rodrigues and the Council are responding to an audio file that is circulating through social networks in which an alleged employee of the Green Cross reports the presence of a confirmed case of Covid-19. The audio file has created a sense of fear in people in Jocotepec who have heard it, and the Council wants them to know this file is false and there are no confirmed cases in Jocotepec.
Some of the rumors may be a misunderstanding of a study done in the city and reported by the Municipal President José Miguel Gómez López. The study found that, although so far Jocotepec does not have a positive case, a few people were found with similar symptoms.
«At this time, there are four cases of people who have similar symptoms to those who carry this virus, “ he said, adding that, “those four people are already isolated, their blood has been drawn and they being tested within the protocols of Ministry of Health to determine if they have the virus. »
The result of the test will be reported when the municipal authorities report the results of the tests and other information regarding the virus. In the meantime, Gómez López is asking the town’s citizens not to be alarmed but to take care to abide by the safety recommendations, such as staying home and recurrently washing their hands.
