A former director of the WHO warns that if the measures against the coronavirus fail in Madrid, the city will have to be confined

Remember Daniel López Acuña, a former director of the WHO, that Madrid currently has a cumulative incidence of 682 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and in recent days it has had 45,000 new cases of Covid-19. Rising figures that for the doctor determine that something is failing in the prevention of cases.

He believes that what is failing is that “no necessary commitment has been made to the public health actions that must be carried out throughout the city.” “It has to reinforce primary care with more staff, the number of trackers and offer alternatives for those who cannot be isolated at home, “he says.

It warns that if the curve does not bend and these measures are not effective, it will be necessary to return to the total confinement of the city of Madrid. “Israel has just done it and London is considering it with minor incidents,” he says. She believes that you have to look at examples such as Aragon and the Balearic Islands, which bent the curve because they took action in time.

The doctor believes that it would be convenient to see in which atmospheres more infections occur. “We cannot ghettoize or segregate broadcasting.”

López Acuña determines that from an incidence of 300 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, more restrictive measures must be applied. “He 22% of PCRs that have been done in Madrid in the last 15 days are positive and that indicates a community transmission for several weeks. ”
