Over the next two weeks, a mechanism will be announced to exempt people with chronic diseases from going to work, and it will depend on the rate of risk in the workplace and the rate of commitment to preventive measures by the institution and individuals
The risk of community infection may-be greater than work infections
We stated 4 weeks ago that there is a standardized list of chronic diseases, but not everyone with a chronic disease or pregnant woman is at risk of contracting the virus
