| Ana Belén Castejón asks the Government Delegation for forcefulness in order to avoid new outbreaks of contagion by coronavirus | The mayor, Ana Belén Castejón, demands that the Government Delegation, due to the health crisis we are experiencing, tighten both health and police controls, as well as preventive measures for workers, due to the arrival of boats on our coasts.The objective is to prevent new outbreaks of contagion from coronavirus from occurring, since yesterday, two of the irregular people who arrived in Cartagena tested positive for this disease.“It is necessary to establish greater control measures on the high seas to prevent the arrival of the boats on the coast and to improve the sanitary measures of professionals to guarantee their safety.
We cannot allow episodes like the one lived yesterday to be repeated, when two immigrants without documentation, who traveled to our coasts with the two people who tested positive, escaped from the National Police Station.
One of them was detained by three Local Police officers, who are in quarantine until tests are carried out to determine if they have been infected or not, "said the mayor, Ana Belén Castejón.The good weather can provoke the arrival of new boats, with possible positives, for which the mayor considers that it is essential that the Government Delegation act forcefully, and extreme isolation and control measures, as well as security and sanitary means of the staff."As always, the City Council is at the disposal of the Government Delegation to provide all the help it deems necessary.
We are facing a health alert situation and we must be consistent with it, "said the mayor.
