LLÁMALE Y DILE – CALL AND TELL
The Regional Ministry of Health has launched an online tool to make a better record of cases of coronavirus and avoid transmission among citizens. This way, patients themselves offer first-hand information in order to be able to anticipate the protective measures to be taken for the population through a simple questionnaire that they can fill in themselves on the website www.llamaleydile.org
The success of the measure lies in the voluntary participation of all those people who have been tested positive or of the people who may have come into contact with those who have tested positive, for which they must enter the website of the Murcia Health Service, Murcia Salud, or directly the campaign website and participate by filling in a small survey with a few simple questions.
This way, with the questionnaires answered by the citizens, an automatic record of coronavirus cases in the Region of Murcia is created, also helping in the detection of new possible cases still undiagnosed. “This will allow us to anticipate the transmission phase of the virus and avoid, with the confinement of the person, the chain of contagion that begins with the appearance of the first symptoms of the infection”, assures the head of the Regional Ministry of Health of the Government of the Region of Murcia .
Results: Up to 15 days of anticipation and the possibility to begin preventive measures, gain time to react, anticipate, alert.

More than twenty companies will co-create solutions to solve the needs previously detected by healthcare professionals.
