The councilor for Health and Public Health of the Cieza City Council reports that, as the municipal Government maintained in the plenary session of May, in the residence there has been no case of COVID-19, so it is not intervened by the SMS.The councilor of Health and Public Health of the City of Cieza, Francisco Saorín, has communicated to the municipal group of Vox the negative response of the Management of Area IX of Health to the request for "carrying out antibody detection tests in the nursing home "Since this center is privately owned, although it has been arranged with IMAS, it being the case that" there has been no case of COVID-19 so far, neither in residents nor workers, so it is not operated by the Murcian Health Service ".In a press release, Saorín recalled that, in the ordinary plenary session on May 12, the municipal group of Vox presented an "alarmist, unfounded and far-fetched" motion asking that the City Council, as a first point, establish "urgently an Inspection and Sanitation Plan for the Cieza nursing home "; and second, to demand that "the immediate realization of a coronavirus detection test be carried out in the nursing home for residents and staff".
All this, "knowing that in the center there was no positive case of Covid-19 infection, nor does the City Council have powers to do so.""The motion," says the councilor for Health and Public Health of the Town Hall ciezano, was so far-fetched that Vox, an hour before the start of the plenary, presented a comprehensive replacement amendment to its own motion, both in the expositional part and in the operative part , with the following text: 'Urge the local government to request the Management of Area IX to carry out the antibody detection test generated by the organism (which acts as host) as an adjunct to hygiene and protection measures in the Residence of Elderly Dº Mariano Marín-Bláquez '".Saorín recalls that, despite the fact that both the mayor and himself tried to redirect Vox's proposal, warning that there was no case of coronavirus infection in the (private) center, nor could the City Council urge an official from another administration, asking insistently that the initiative be reformulated as useless, Vox maintained it with the support of the PP, "which did not present any motion but added to everything that 'smells' like wearing down the municipal government." Finally, the amendment would be approved with the votes of the two groups and the other councilors abstaining.
In the case of the Government, the mayor of Health and Public Health specifies that "the government did not vote against it and opted to abstain to avoid a subsequent tortuous use of the sense of vote by Vox."The councilor for Health and Public Health explains that on May 14, he transferred what was agreed to the Manager of Health Area IX, "as agreed in full" and on the 15th, a certification from the City Council secretary, "faithful reflection of the initiative in detail of the part of the vote that took place.
" "That same day I received a 'negative' answer and an explanation from the Manager of Health Area IX, as well as the document that accredits his answer," concludes the mayor.Francisco Saorín has described Vox's strategy as a "tavern" in his "continuous attempt to take advantage of the tragedy of the Covid-19 pandemic and fear among the population to generate alarm, all with the clear intention of wearing down the legitimate municipal government that, in compliance with its obligation and responsibility, it has been giving information on the health situation and the measures adopted and agreeing on economic solutions for the people of Cezanza, while the right-wing opposition has done nothing but put 'sticks on the wheels' ".Finally, Saorín has asked the PP, as the majority opposition party that has governed Cieza, to "put his shoulder down", to "stop competing for the same political space with Vox, to distance himself from the shouting and to join the work and the responsibility, not for the government, for the ciezanos ".
