    The secretary of the Department of Health (DS), Lorenzo Gonz?lez, reported on Friday that the number of deaths from coronavirus (COVID-19) rose to 15 . Meanwhile, 62 new infections are added to the list for 378 in total.

    Gonz?lez, offered a morning update during a radio interview (WKAQ), would be contemplating totally isolating -in hotels, for example- the positives to curb contagions locally.

    " The 'lockdown' is the right decision and it will probably last. We are not talking about a day or two days ... " said Gonz?lez, who stressed the importance of wearing masks.

    Deaths increase to 12 and 316 positives from COVID-19
    Here is the most recent report from the Department of Health.
    By TELEMUNDO PR • Published on April 02, 2020 • Updated 5 hours ago

    The death of an 84-year-old man yesterday raised the death toll from coronavirus (Covid-19) to 12 on the Island, the Health Department reported today.

    The man was initially confined with symptoms of Covid-2019 in a hospital institution in the Mayag?ez region, the test was performed and he tested positive. Subsequently, his clinical picture worsened, causing his death.

    On the other hand, 30 additional positive cases were also reported, for a total of 316. Of those 30 new cases, two correspond to minors; a 4-year-old girl and a 17-year-old teenager.

    While, the positive results of adults correspond to 13 women of the ages of 20, 64, 61, 26, 74, 62, 78, 49, 53, 55, 81, 82 and 84 years. Also, 15 men are added; two of them 33 years old and the others 30, 42, 49, 51, 52, 55, 61, 63, 64, 67, 69, 70.79.

    "Epidemiological forecasts anticipate that Puerto Rico will go through the highest peak of contagion approximately for the first week of May, which means that the most critical moment of this pandemic on the Island has not yet arrived. Once again we ask the citizens to cooperate and follow the instructions established by the Executive Order issued by Governor Wanda V?zquez Garced. We are making all the necessary efforts and efforts so that we can best face this crisis in the country, but the best way you have to protect yourself is to stay at home, "emphasized Dr. Lorenzo Gonz?lez, secretary of the Department of Health.

    For his part, Dr. Segundo Rodr?guez Quilinchini, coordinator of the Puerto Rico Medical Task Force, stated that “the increase in positive cases is imminent and the future of the Country and its citizens will depend to a large extent on the support received from them by respecting the containment and prevention measures that we have recommended. Please, this is not the time to visit family members that I had not seen in a long time or to go out unnecessarily. For your health, for your community, stay home. We don't want to have the death charts that other countries are experiencing. It is time to stop and stop underestimating this virus. Anyone, healthy as it may seem, could be infected and can infect you. Do not leave your home, it is vital that these measures of social isolation are taken very seriously, "he said.

    In Puerto Rico, a total of 3,041 Covid-19 tests have already been carried out, of which 1,604 have yielded negative results.

    Puerto Rico shutters police stations amid COVID-19 curfew
    by DANICA COTO Associated PressWednesday, April 1st 2020


    SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Puerto Rico on Wednesday closed its fifth police station in a week, raising concerns about the U.S. territory's ability to respond to the coronavirus pandemic as officers accused the government of exposing one of the largest police departments in a U.S. jurisdiction to COVID-19.

    More than 150 officers are under quarantine as dozens await test results on an island that has reported 11 deaths and more than 280 confirmed cases amid a month long curfew that has shuttered beaches, parks and non-essential businesses.

    Two more deaths from COVID-19, and positive cases increase to 127
    The deceased are two men.
    By: CyberNews

    Updated: Mar 29, 2020 10:24 AM

    Health Department Secretary Lorenzo Gonz?lez Feliciano reported on Sunday two additional deaths from the COVID-19 coronavirus.

    “With these two additional deaths, there are already five regrettable events of this type that we have to face due to COVID-19. It is noteworthy that the death announced this week, as well as one of those reported today, correspond to people at relatively young ages, which makes us think about the importance of protecting ourselves by taking the appropriate measures to avoid contagion and community transmission on the Island. This virus does not discriminate, so anyone can be a victim of its lethal consequences. So the advice must be consistently reiterated: stay home and maintain social distance, wash your hands, avoid touching your face and clean surfaces, "said Gonz?lez Feliciano in written statements.

    Both deceased were reportedly men and were in isolation rooms of two different hospitals.

    The first of them, 68, was being held in a hospital in the San Juan metropolitan region and had already been diagnosed as a positive case for COVID-19. The second, 42 years old, was being treated in a hospital in the Fajardo region and the positive result for the coronavirus was released on the day of his death. Both presented comorbidities.

    In turn, the total number of positive results reported increased to 127, after the Public Health Laboratory reflected 27 new ones, the Veterans Hospital one, and an additional one obtained by private laboratories. Of these new ones, 14 positives correspond to males and 13 to females.

    On the other hand, the total of negative results increased to 841 and another 817 are expected.

    A total of 1,785 COVID-19 tests have already been carried out in Puerto Rico, a significant increase compared to those that were being carried out weeks ago. This reflects the government's effort to obtain the tests and make them more accessible to the entire population.

    “Undoubtedly, the efforts to obtain diagnostic instruments for the COVID-19 have been titanic, having to compete for articles of world scarcity for which there is a high demand today. The fruits are already being seen and as we continue to receive more results from these tests, we will be able to move to a more robust epidemiological study with which we can analyze the behavior of this coronavirus on our Island to finally succeed in overcoming it, "he concluded.
