We remind all citizens that until we have the vaccine, we will all have to live and work while maintaining maximum vigilance against the risk of infection.
To loosen some measures, it becomes even more important to strictly follow all the instructions of the health authorities, respect the physical distance and the care of personal hygiene. " is the invitation addressed to citizens by the Ministry of Health.
