"The Red Cross is not worried, it is busy; we have a very rigid protocol to immediately detect any incident this is in the Red Cross Playa del Carmen, but in general the national Red Cross there are guidelines, on the other hand, we are also following the guidelines that it requires and that we must comply with the Ministry of Health," she said in an interview.

She trusted that the coronavirus is not an issue to worry about, but rather to deal with, which is why the Playa del Carmen Red Cross is on 24-hour alert to attend to those suspicious cases in coordination with the Health Department.

"All medical personnel are trained, they are aware of how to act in the slightest suspicion of a problem, it has not occurred, the protocols are in place and we are not in the least concerned, yes we are on alert, aware that eventually, it could urge a situation," she said.

She explained that the medical infrastructure offers the general public quality services and warmth 24 hours a day, even though they work with limitations due to the fact that they do not receive government subsidies, but she is confident that thanks to the donations they will continue with the noble mission of helping.

"We have a payroll of 35 people that includes everything, but we do have it distributed in five shifts, we operate 24 hours a day, there is a doctor that gives consultations 24 hours a day in three shifts during the week and two shifts on weekends," she said.

Finally, for those people who wish to contribute to the Red Cross Playa del Carmen in the many daily needs that presents, the coordinator recalled the phone number of contributions that is 9841794100 as well as the bank account in the name of the Red Cross to make donations and receive a receipt that serves as a tax deduction.
