| And asks the Mayor of Cartagena for respect, rigor and that does not generate social alarm | The Government Delegate, José Vélez, today guaranteed rigorous compliance with all protocols in the legal and health management of irregular immigrants arriving by sea in the Region of Murcia and asked the Mayor of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón, respect for the work carried out by hundreds of public servants, rigor in their declarations, which, far from helping, generates uncertainty in citizens and unnecessary social alarm. "The sanitary controls are regulated by a national protocol of Health, and in the Region of Murcia, the competent authority is the Ministry of Health, which determines the actions to be carried out.
All immigrants undergo a medical examination and, following the instructions of the Ministry of Health, also the necessary tests to determine if they have COVID-19.
In the event of any symptoms, they are immediately isolated to avoid risks to the health of the personnel who attend them, "he indicated. The Government delegate has stated that he is not surprised by Castejón's statements, but disappointed, because in exceptional circumstances such as this, institutional unity and height are required and to stop using this matter with a political interest.
"And much less in cases such as the immigration issue in which the reaction to two possible cases of coronavirus was immediate and satisfactorily resolved, as the tests carried out were negative," he concluded.
