Torres Iríbar called on those working in the municipality of Playa, to make a greater effort in accordance with the demands of the moment and current needs.

According to the newspaper Tribuna de La Habana, as part of the work against COVID-19, the SIUM was given 15 computers to help respond quickly to requests for assistance, two printers, air conditioning units, paint and televisions.

They also received support from 20 students from the Enrique José Varona University of Pedagogical Sciences, 15 teachers from the municipality of Playa, in addition to the Cubataxi Company.
