Deputy Juan Luis Castro (PS), referred to the rise in Ómicron cases, for which he urged the health authorities to take measures to curb the situation. “I ask the authority, the Minister of Health, his entire team, to take control of this situation because it is getting out of hand,” he criticized.
On the other hand, the parliamentarian maintained that the country is in a complicated situation regarding the pandemic. “Today the rate of growth of infections is disproportionate and, beyond the complaints, it is not seen that there is a direct intervention of the authority without calling for self-care,” he pointed out.
Castro deepened his request, alluding to the fact that “there are three great unresolved problems. One is that the PCR tests are taking longer than in the entire period of infection of the omicron, it seems incredible, the omicron takes three to five days to incubate, and a total of seven days. And it turns out that there are people who do not have access to the result of their PCR test.”
Secondly, he stated that “there is no mass availability of antigen tests that, in fifteen minutes, anyone could know if they are infected or not, and with a very high level of sensitivity. 92,” she maintained.
On the other hand, deputy Castro pointed to “traceability”, alluding to the fact that “all the contacts of an infected person are absolutely on the ground today, because nobody has management, nobody can know who they infected or not, and who is called close contact.” “We have reached an unimaginable level of cases, and they are going to continue to rise,” he concluded.
