For her part, the director of the INS, Marta Ospina, explained that this case is about a person who traveled to the United States and returned in early July with symptoms of the disease.

Ospina added that the person has been kept in isolation since then.

"It reminds us once again of the importance of isolation and compliance with the protocol. That is, the control of the chains of contacts, minimizing the possibility of propagation, which effectively allows the speed of transmission," said the director of the INS .
