The SSA highlighted that it keeps epidemiological surveillance throughout the country in the cold season, especially in regions where the lowest temperatures are recorded and issued recommendations for the population.

They said that to reduce associated risks it is important to be careful with heating systems so as to not breathe gases that cause poisoning and maintain ventilation in rooms where there are heat sources such as fireplaces, heaters, stoves or cookers. Similarly, they asked people if they have to use candles, do not leave them on and be careful with them, as they may cause a fire, and make sure that coal, electric and gas stoves are away from curtains. It recommended, among other things, to provide extra care to children and older adults, as well as people with chronic diseases, because they are the most vulnerable to respiratory diseases in this era.
