Ante las últimas noticias aparecidas en los medios de información, confirmó que he dado positivo en el test del coronavirus. Me encuentro aislado en mi casa y totalmente asintomático. Por eso, quiero aprovechar esta red social para que no colapsemos nuestra Sanidad. Ahora, son nuestros mayores los que más la necesitan y son los casos graves los que tienen que ser atendidos por nuestros héroes de la Sanidad. Desde aquí dar las gracias a todos los miembros de la Sanidad española (personal de limpieza, celadores, auxiliares, enfermeros, médicos, personal de ambulancias y personal de laboratorios). Tampoco quiero olvidarme de las todas las fuerzas de seguridad y de toda la gente que está haciendo posible que en estos momentos no nos falte de nada. Ellos son los verdaderos héroes de esta pandemia. Entre todos y junto a ellos saldremos victoriosos.

I knew today that I am Coronavirus positive. At the moment, I'm feelling good and I have no symptoms associated with the virus. However, I am confined in house and have no contact with my family. I learned that we can carry the virus without having symptoms, that's why I recommend everyone to follow the confinement measures and avoid contact with other people, as much as possible, even if you feel well. If everyone respect these instructions, together we will avoid the propagation as much as possible and fight to avoid transmitting it to people, who may have aggravating symptoms. Many thanks for your support message, Take care of yourself and your loved ones and respect the confinement instructions to avoid the spreading🙏🏿 #QuedateenCasa #StayAtHome #RestezALaMaison
