Gonzalez, general health of the city, calls for high-risk individuals be vaccinated, as is the case of persons over age 50, pregnant women, patients with cancer of the lung or heart disease, diabetes, asthma, HIV, and other chronic degenerative disorders, and those living and live every day with these people.

It is recommended to people sick with a tissue to cover mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing, then throw the tissue in a trash safe, and washing hands.
If you cough covering the inside of your arm to the elbow, also wash your hands. Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth because germs get fast on these three routes and do not share personal items that might be contaminated with body fluids of others.
