He added that, as public institutions, the pre-hospital care they provide is completely free, as long as it is an emergency, noting that unfortunately, people have the misconception that scheduled transfers also count as an emergency.

Finally, he recalled that, although they were working on a bill to regulate prehospital services, he assured that the pandemic had to happen, noting that this is not a sign that it will be forgotten, as they will depend on what Congress will retake it.
