This is not a time to panic, but a time to take precautions

According to the figures handled by the authorities, 200 people out of every 100,000 inhabitants have tested positive for COVID-19 and it is for this reason that they have decided to raise the alert level to yellow.

“This is not a time to panic, but a time to take precautions. Do it today, you need to get tested, you need to talk to a doctor who can prescribe a very effective new drug,” said Manhattan Borough President Mark Levine.

As a pediatrician, Dr. Vanessa Baracaldo attends daily to her small patients who are part of the population vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19.

-Who are most vulnerable?

“So in my practice I have seen many young children up to 6 months positive for the corona virus,” explained the doctor. “And we know that these children cannot be vaccinated, so the population that cannot be vaccinated is vulnerable. People with chronic conditions like diabetes, and obviously people who have a low immune system like cancer, lupus, are more vulnerable.”

Health Commissioner Dr. Ashwin Vasan in a statement said Monday that New Yorkers should take the necessary care to avoid getting infected, care and prevention, which according to the official have relaxed a bit in recent weeks.

I point out that people are at higher risk of serious illness due to age, underlying health conditions, or because they are not vaccinated, and should consider taking extra precautions.

“So now we know that people have lowered their guards, we are, one, tired of the pandemic, two, we don’t want to wear masks, three, we have been told that we can take off our masks, that causes people to change their behavior” added Dr. Baracaldo.

“I’m still wearing my mask, I’m still disinfecting everything when I get home, I’m still taking the same precautions from the beginning,” said patient Jennifer Ventura.
