Derived from the sustained transmission of COVID-19 in the entity, and from the municipalities of Lázaro Cárdenas, Morelia and Uruapan being placed again in Bandera Amarrilla (High Risk), the SSM reiterates the urge of the population to extreme preventive measures to break the contagion chain and not collapse the beds in the nosocomios.
Therefore, staying at home is essential to prevent the spread of the virus in the entity and, with this, preserve the health and life of the population.
In case of essential activities, the correct use of the water cover, the distance of at least one and a half meters between people, as well as the constant washing or disinfection of hands with antibacterial gel is of vital importance. Not touching your face with dirty hands is also of paramount importance as the virus enters the system through the mucous membrane of eyes, nose and mouth.
Social co-responsibility is essential to make the objective of health authorities possible.
The SSM makes available to the population the 800-123-2890 with 11 lines to solve all its operational medical doubts, as well as the microsite bit.ly/MichCOVID-19 where you will find all the information available about this condition.
