On Wednesday, businessmen and owners of hot springs met Mr. Salas, the Director General of Health, Priscila Herrera and the Director of Health Surveillance, Rodrigo Marín, in order to discuss the regulations that are promoted to the sector to prevent cases of amebic meningitis (computer translated).
