The Ministry of health has decided to conduct antigen tests and PPE equipment for 60000 polling station members in the next 14-F election. The government finally decided to conduct diagnostic tests instead of PCR to improve flexibility and avoid putting more pressure on the health system because 44000 tests per day. The plan includes FFP2 masks for all personnel, not surgical and PPE equipment, including gowns, screens and gloves.
After the caucus meeting, Health Secretary General mark ramento announced a plan to conduct 60000 voluntary tests in caps from February 9 to 12. The bet on the tests is that they provide an immediate response, so they don’t strain the health care system. The Ministry of health also envisages that Bureau members will receive a telematics explanation to properly wear personal protective equipment between 19:00 and 20:00 when voting on the coved patient plan. Health reference staff, usually employed by the city government, will help them put on the equipment.
Ramento also defended the decision not to vaccinate 60000 polling station members, arguing that there was no time to double the dose to ensure their immunity. On top of that, he warned that by the end of the week, their health would be running out of the remaining 40000 vaccines and the refrigerator would be “empty.”. It is estimated that on February 1, Pfizer’s dose will be 5000 doses less than planned, and 8000 doses of modern vaccine have been postponed until next week. For all these reasons, the Ministry of health believes that people at risk – residential workers and health workers, as well as residential grandparents – should continue to be vaccinated, rather than giving priority to election workers.
The election committee also discussed the progress of the campaign. Bernat sol é, the government’s external action adviser, explained that all political parties had achieved a balance between “the right to health and the right to political participation” and hoped to comply with the protocol to the declaration. The plan prioritizes digital events and holds them with as few members of the public as possible after registration. “I believe all parties will take responsibility whether there is a face-to-face event or not,” the consultant explained. The problem is that some candidates are going 100% digital, with no audience, while others are considering an influx, even the smallest. The government cannot prohibit citizens from changing the municipal authorities to attend assemblies because it is a fundamental right.
