Since National Palace, Rodríguez Bores He noted that during the “new normal” there may be fear since the fact that there is no vaccine increases uncertainty about the duration of the pandemic.

“There are disturbing phenomena, adverse as a epidemic, a war, and what follows is recovery, learning to establish new routines.
