The Mayor’s Office of Cochabamba today opened a space on its Facebook page for people to consult their doubts or make comments regarding COVID 19, with the commitment to respond to all the concerns of the population.
“Do you have questions, queries or concerns regarding COVID-19 and the way in which our municipality is affected? Leave your question in the comments and wait for the response of our Secretary of Health, Dr. Aníbal Cruz ”, says the text that invites the population to ask about this issue.
Let’s ask the one who knows! He finishes off a sentence on the poster that can be seen on the official Facebook page.
“This initiative of the Mayor’s Office is important, especially when false information arises that confuses the population,” said neighbor Mercedes Rocabado, who asked the Mayor’s Office to provide as much information as possible on this issue.
Yesterday, for example, information was circulating that revealed that in the municipality of Cochabamba, vehicular and pedestrian circulation had once again been restricted between midnight on Saturday until five in the morning on Monday.
This situation caused confusion in the population and many already took it for granted that this day (Sunday) could not be circulated. It was fake news.
The municipality, in another message uploaded to Facebook, recommends that the population should take into account the official information on circulation schedules and any new measure will be made known jointly with the departmental COE.
The Departmental Emergency Operations Committee (COED) will meet tomorrow to define whether new restrictions will be determined to stop the increase in positive cases of coronavirus, even more so when the positives have even exceeded 500 a day and, on average, there are more than 300 .
Yesterday, once the space for people to send their queries or concerns was launched, Facebook users began to send their queries to know, for example, what is the best remedy to combat the coronavirus, if necessary close businesses or implement confinement measures or suggest that sanctions be toughened for those who do not comply with biosecurity measures, in addition to what would be the best vaccine against COVID and how the municipality is preparing to face the third wave.
