CITY COUNCIL thanks participants of the mass screening in Oria, Almeria.
The mass screening in the small town of Oria in Almeria was carried out on Tuesday, February 2, and 190 residents turned up to be tested. The screening revealed zero positive cases of the coronavirus which is great news for the town.
Oria Town Hall took to Facebook to share the good news, where they confirmed that 63.3 per cent of invited participants had attended the screening. The town hall wanted to thank residents for attending the screening and for the degree of responsibility that they had shown.
