With the recent increase in the number of cases, patients and deaths, we follow the 'information pollution' on these numbers with sadness and concern. We are experiencing the uneasiness of having to detect 2-3 times the differences between the daily death figures reflected in our institutions and the numbers published by the central government every night. It is now the responsibility of every public official to share the facts about this virus and its consequences with the public in almost every home. There is nothing publicly or conscientiously understandable to avoid this sense of responsibility. We invite the public administrators to be determined to share the facts with all their nakedness in such a process where a funeral starts to rise from each house. Same determination; It must also be shown in matters such as financial aid, support and incentives that must be made to all segments of society adversely affected by the pandemic. We invite the central administration to fulfill all the requirements of being a social state and to include all its institutions in the process with a sense of mobilization. We are obliged to announce to the public that we are in consensus on the point that a 2 or 3-week closure is essential, in line with the recommendations of scientists, in terms of protecting public health.
