ONE OF THE EXPOSED PERSONAL
On the other hand, it should be remembered that due to the outbreak of a hantavirus, 89 people still remain in mandatory isolation in Epyen (34), El Maiten (31), El Hoyo (1), Cholila (1), Esquel (15) and Travel 7).
As confirmed, one of those people violated yesterday's justice measure and was found by police to produce documents.
Commissioner Rodolfo Hess, head of the Eskel Regional Unit, in a dialogue with FM del Lago, confirmed that the incident occurred in Epune, where a person was absent from his home.
The fact was convicted, thanks to the fact that Criminal Justice of Chubut, through Judge Martin Zaccino, ordered compulsory isolation for those who might have a virus product to be in contact with someone from the infected.
This measure was requested by the Esquel Public Prosecutor's Office, measured by the Health Department of Chubut, after discovering cases where isolation was respected in possible suspicious cases.
For now, it is not known what punishment will impose justice and what the arguments of the perpetrator will be.
