Below is a translation of that article regarding “25 more days”. |
I holding my breath for a more firm announcement from the Governor of Jalisco before I start to feel relieved that our little town will not be flooded with Semana Santa vacationers.
Let’s hope it becomes a firm demand.
Throughout the day there were meetings and telephone calls at Casa Jalisco to leaders from different sectors, cameral leaders and influential figures. The need for citizens not to leave home was weighed, and the economic and social costs that this implies.
In the afternoon the governor's official residence was the scene of a last meeting with cabinet members to adjust the details of the announcement. In photographs that the governor himself uploaded to social networks, you can see metropolitan coordinators, secretaries and mayors, as well as the rector general of the University of Guadalajara. The faces in the photos looked serious. Coffee, water and antibacterial gel shone on the desks.
Transcended after said meeting they indicated that the confinement should extend until April 19 next. 25 difficult days for everyone.
If the announcement is made, a period of shock will come among citizens. Shock because three more weeks is a lot, but at the same time it is clear that it is the only reasonable way to prevent the spread of an evil that has paralyzed half the world.
Those of us who follow the news day by day, hour by hour, see with fear what is happening in Italy and Spain. And from there, via social networks, messages reach us asking us not to ignore the instructions of the health authorities. "Stay home," they say.
