Santo Domingo.- Faced with the collapse of the areas designated for COVID-19 cases in clinics and the increase in infections in Santiago province in recent days, Public Health Minister Rafael Sánchez met Saturday with the health authorities to assess the situation and take action to stop the spread of the virus.
