| José Antonio Peñalver recalls that at the beginning of the second wave the PSOE insistently asked the regional government to reinforce primary care and increase the trackers, as did the Valencian Community, but they ignored it | "In its orchestrated smear campaign, the regional government blames the Government of Spain to justify its incompetence.
It did not heed the recommendations of the Ministry, or the professional associations, or the PSRM" The deputy of the Socialist Parliamentary Group José Antonio Peñalver has denounced that the lack of trackers has been decisive in the lack of control of the pandemic in the Region of Murcia, unlike the Valencian Community, where a large number of them were opted from the beginning . "At the beginning of the second wave, from the PSOE, we insistently raised it with the regional government, and we put Valencia as an example, but they ignored it," he recalled. In addition, it has indicated that at the beginning of the pandemic, the virus did not hit the Region of Murcia like other communities, because the late onset and total confinement allowed the follow-up of cases from primary care, where the overexertion of its professionals was decisive. "We had to prepare for the arrival of the second wave and the regional government did not do so, although López Miras said in May that we were prepared.
Primary care was not strengthened, nor was public health services, nor the capacity to carry out PCR.
But, above all, a bag of trackers was not created, trained and prepared, as we repeatedly demanded from the PSOE, "he added. The Socialist deputy has assured that the Valencian Community is better controlling and managing the pandemic, because it did an intense monitoring of the cases, with the deployment of a large number of trackers from the beginning, when the incidence was low.
"When community transmission begins, we are already late, as has happened to us in the Murcia region.
The effective thing would have been to control at the beginning and the spread of the virus would not have gotten out of hand." He also highlighted that the Ministry of Health already warned the regional government in May of what it had to do and that it had a critical point in the Health area of ??Lorca.
"But, instead of acting, the López Miras Executive relaxed, enjoying the results of the first wave." Now, in its orchestrated smear campaign, the regional government blames Barajas and the government of Spain to justify their incompetence.
He ignored the recommendations of the Ministry, or the professional associations, or the PSOE of the Region of Murcia.
