One of those affected by the outbreak of coronavirus detected in a day centre for people with disabilities in San Javier died this Sunday night as a result of the disease, according to sources from the Aidemar association – the entity responsible for the facilities – through a statement published on social networks.
The affected person, whose state of health was “very delicate” and had previous pathologies, was one of the people who tested positive in Covid this weekend, after the centre alerted of the existence of an outbreak affecting 16 people.
The association in charge of the centre, Aidemar, has reported that the outbreak affects 20 residents and 12 professionals, all of them asymptomatic and in good health.
The Regional Ministry of Health informed this Sunday of the existence of the outbreak, and said that the Public Health service was studying both the evolution of the cases and the close contacts.
In this regard, the association has confirmed that it detected some positive cases last Friday and informed all “relevant” health authorities from the “first minute” activating the contingency protocol. In addition, it has pointed out that the infected residents remain isolated in homes exclusively for them, in order to stop the virus.
“From the Murcian Institute of Social Action (IMAS), the Ministry of Health and other official bodies involved, we are receiving all the necessary support and resources, working closely for the good of all our users and workers,” stressed the association.
“We want to convey peace of mind, as we have all the necessary means and support,” according to the association, which has specified that it remains “alert” and is carrying out tests to control the outbreak.
