Physical Distancing and Proper Mask are Key in Prevention

According to Doctor Marvin Manzanero, twenty-six recovery cases were confirmed, but thirty-five point nine percent of the total confirmed cases are still active. Doctor Manzanero reminds that current scientific evidence continues to indicate that physical distancing and proper mask wearing are key in prevention.

“We did have a significant amount of recoveries particular towards the middle of September. Granted that over the last two weeks the total of amount of active cases is less then forty percent but it doesn’t money we are over it. Those active cases if they are still infecting, global data is that two point seven percent of persons get infected by one but in some situations up to twelve infections coming from one person. So those are still an eye opener. I think people also assume that because the airport is also opening up there is a little bit of okay we are more or less in the clear. So those things have to be factored in. It is not as easy as that. It is not a straight line.”
