The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, considers it “unfair” to treat “by audios, conversations or” concrete opinions the situation that has been experienced in residences in the region during the coronavirus pandemic.
Díaz Ayuso has expressed it this way to the media when asked about the recording of a phone call published by El Periódico about the case of a family from a residence in the Madrid municipality of Griñón, in which a nurse recognizes the daughter of a resident who cannot be transferred to a hospital on March 23.
The Madrid president has made these statements at an event in the San Martín de Valdeiglesias Fire Station, where she has signed an agreement with the presidents of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page, and of Castilla y León, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, to guarantee the maximum speed in the extinction of forest fires.
Díaz Ayuso has stated that, although the Community of Madrid would have had “an extraordinary reinforcement of doctors”, the pandemic would have been very difficult to stop, because, he argued, “when COVID enters the body of an older person, it warns late” and elderly people who have been treated in the hospital with the best means have been seen who have died in a few hours.
“We must bear in mind that we have lived through a war in this country”, not only in residences, but also in hospitals and private homes, due to a “devastating” pandemic that entered Madrid as “a tsunami” , has underlined.
For this reason, she insisted that, for her, it is unfair “to extract conversations and comments from so many nights of pain” in which up to five hundred people died and in which the region’s health or firefighters “gave their best “without having information of what the coronavirus was, and even so, he added,” they managed to stop COVID. “
Addressing the firefighters of the San Martín de Valdeiglesias park, he recognized the work of the members of this body during the health emergency, under the coordination of a single command, which managed to “save lives” in the residences, refer patients and create circuits COVID-19 and not COVID-19.
Díaz Ayuso has affirmed that it can be said that “this has stopped thanks to the work of these professionals”, but has warned “that no one can get rid of a flare-up, inside or outside a residence, in Madrid or in another autonomous community”.
