José María Vergeles: “The situation in Extremadura has not changed with regard to the community transmission of the coronavirus.” The Minister of Health has said that the number of cases has risen, we have a total of 19 accumulated cases, that is, 9 new cases. There have been three discharges and one deceased.
Six of the new cases of COVID-19 diagnosed in Extremadura are related to the woman from Arroyo de la Luz who died yesterday and the excursion made from the town to Seville. The Board therefore orders that the funeral be carried out in the “strictest privacy” to avoid the spread of the coronavirus, after the history of infections at funerals in the Basque Country and La Rioja. The Minister of Health has clarified that the body does not transmit the virus.
For now, classes are not suspended in Extremadura. Vergeles sends a message of tranquility to teachers and says that for now the schools are still open. “It is not appropriate to suspend education in a region where there is no community transmission.”
The seven new cases detected in Arroyo de la Luz are people who were infected on the excursion to Seville or through close contact with the deceased.
