Simón has taken advantage of his intervention this Sunday to remember that "The use of gloves is dangerous if we do not use it well". And it is that as soon as a person touches his face, despite wearing this type of protection, he is not fulfilling his function in any way.
Regarding the quarantine of international travelers after the passage forward in Italy and after Sánchez refused to do the same in Spain this Saturday, Simón acknowledged that "there are still many uncertainties" to be able to express themselves clearly.
Simón continues without ruling out a regrowth in our country, so he recalls that "we must go progressively." In turn, he noted that "contagions are detected every time before but we will have more information in the coming days with the new surveillance systems."
