The population must follow universal measures, including hand washing, respect for social distancing, avoid touching the face" while reminding the population, to deny certain false information that circulates, that more than 80% of people with Covid-19 are in mild form and are not in critical situations requiring hospitalization or emergency breathing assistance.
