The hashtag #GraciasPorCuidarnos (translated from Spanish meaning: “Thank you for taking care of us”) has gained strength in social networks to recognize the work by the people who work against the Covid-19 coronavirus.
The restriction that requires staying at home for the majority of the population does not apply to first responders, nurses, policemen, doctors, pharmacy workers, restaurants, administrative personnel, military and security agents.
Bank employees and government authorities also continue to work.
“Thank you very much to all the Guatemalans who are out working day and night so that we can stay home,” said María Inés Rivera, of the National Civic Movement.
“Today the heroes who are outside provide safety for those who are inside,” added businessman Juan José Gutiérrez. #JuntosSaldremosAdelante#QuedateEnCasa#GraciasPorCuidarnos pic.twitter.com/3RSyQiDXPI
