The former director of the Santa Marina de Bilbao hospital, José Luis Sabas, who was vaccinated by skipping the protocol and also sought doses for outsiders such as religious, four union delegates and even distributors, has revealed in ‘El Correo’ captures of his WhatsApp messages with the Minister of Health, Gotzone Sagardui, and with the general director of Osakidetza, Rosa Pérez Esquerdo, to try to show that he had the green light from the Basque Health dome to immunize the entire hospital.

The messages with Sagardui They coincide with those that she herself read in Parliament this Wednesday, when she claimed that when Sabas suggested that “all personnel” would be vaccinated, it would be all those who corresponded to them in this initial phase and, of course, neither the managers nor the external ones. There is evidence that a TVE team was sent to the hospital to record the vaccination at that center due to its special incidence of coronavirus cases. “I already told you that I have Santa Marina very present,” Sagardui wrote.
In the case of the crossing with Pérez Esquerdo, she is the one who asks Sabas if “all” the professionals have been vaccinated and, upon receiving the answer, she sends a “perfect” to the manager. He also asks if the management team has received the dose as well, Sabas confirms it and she says goodbye without comment with “see you tomorrow.” At the end of that chat, Sabas asks the general director to make the “defect” a “virtue” and asks the organization to promote that an entire hospital has been vaccinated.
The big question is who authorized the sending of vials to vaccinate 550 people. Sabas only tells Pérez Esquerdo that they requested them that way from Santa Marina. She simply replies with a “ok”. The opposition has unsuccessfully asked Sagardui to clarify this point and has even demanded his resignation due to this controversy.
