“Let’s not limit this to the fact that this is done to reduce viral circulation, but, by decreasing the movement, we have fewer gatherings of people that can generate disturbances on public or private roads, fewer injured people and fewer critical beds occupied, leaving, just in case, a health system that continues to respond as it is doing until now, “said Herrera Ahuad.
