Will Dominican Republic go to phase 3 of de-escalation this Wednesday? Public Health responds

Rafael Sánchez Cárdenas reported today that the decision to go to phase three of de-escalation will be made by the Ministry of Public Health in a meeting with President Danilo Medina, which will depend on the data provided by the evidence on the situation of the coronavirus.

“The final opinion on the move from one phase to the next is made and discussed in the presence of the President and the opinion of the Ministry will be made at that time when we present the evidence that tells us if we can move forward or should we contain this action,” said the official.

Sánchez Cárdenas noted that in recent days there has been a slight increase in COVID-19 cases in the country after phase two of de-escalation began.

It is recalled that, according to the schedule of the de-escalation that the Executive Power raised, phase three is scheduled to start this Wednesday, June 17.
