    “We will work in a similar way as was done with the influenza pandemic. The idea is that there are clear guidelines for schools, health centers and workers to make it everyone’s responsibility, and that people are not only expecting the government to eliminate breeding sites of mosquitoes that transmit the disease,” explained Dr. Trejos.

    The idea of ​​this green alert is to have the financial resources to carry out concrete actions to reduce the spread of the disease.
