“Medellín reached the peak of the pandemic in a controlled way by the state of Total Care that has saved thousands of lives and the care of citizens, especially the elderly, “said the president through his Twitter account.
In turn, he stressed that it should continue to be applied for several more weeks:
We hope to be on the plateau of the peak for a couple of weeks in which we must maintain the state of total care. Then there will come a descent in which the rest of the sectors can be reopened and the process of economic reactivation can begin. pic.twitter.com/psWRfysZzY
