Currently, many of the concerns surrounding citizens are related to Christmas. Due to the pandemic, and in the absence of Health to communicate the restrictions that will be adopted for those dates, there are numerous experts who are committed to limiting contacts and reduce social interactions.
That is the case of Jose Luis Jimenez, one of the great specialists in aerosol transmission and who works as a professor at the University of Colorado. In a interview in Sanity, states that the priority it must be “save us”, since otherwise it would be “bread for today and pandemic for tomorrow”.
Likewise, Jiménez points out several key dates on the Christmas calendar: “If we have good meetings on December 25, on January 25 we have a lot of dead, collapsed hospitals and a yo-yo of confinements. They confine us, they lower the cases, we relax, they raise the cases again and we return to the confinements. This is extremely destructive to the health and to the viability of the country. “
To offer a sample of what should be done, sets himself as an example, since his family is not going to meet with anyone that is not cohabiting nor will they travel during the holidays. Also, make a request: “Especially not meet with grandparents, but do it online or go for a walk with them on those days and then have dinner each at home “.
Recommendations for public transport
Regarding the danger of public transport, the scientist emphasizes that “if we can keep your distance and limit nearby contagion, wear masks well adjusted, talk as little as possible and transport has a ventilation reasonable, not very insecure. If we start crowd people, or we talk about very old vehicles that do not ventilate well or people speak or shout, becomes more dangerous. “
